Audio network chip startup Bridge Co. has established a R&D center in Bangalore, India.

The company, which also has facilities in Huntingdon Beach, California, plans to invest $2 million of its recent $6 million in new financing at the R&D center over the next two years.

The Bangalore center, which will be operational next month, will be initially staffed with 20 software engineers with expertise in networking or digital media processing.

The India facility complements BridgeCo's existing worldwide network of licensed software development partners which together provide a pool of over 120 trained engineers.

BridgeCo has already produced silicon and software to connect consumer electronics to home networks and the Internet, and has design wins with major consumer electronics Pioneer, Denon, Grundig, Harman Kardon and Philips.

It claims to have shipped more than a million units of its networked audio processors, and says it supplies over half of the world s global brands that manufacture networked audio products.

BridgeCo uses a novel Linux-based SDK combined with an application-specific networked media processor. This JukeBlox technology enables streaming of all popular digital music formats and streaming protocols over Wi-Fi, wired Ethernet, USB and iPod connections.
