BENGALURU, India Xilinx Inc.'s center in Hyderbad will serve as its global R&D hub.
Until now, the Indian center focused on developing IP cores. It has developed about 60 cores, many based on 65-nm process technology.
It will tackle software, systems and application development with teams focusing on each area. The system and application center will focus on domain-specific platforms for Xilinx customers developing products for the consumer electronics, telecommunications and video markets. A software center will work on EDA tools and algorithm development, verification and FPGA benchmarking.
Xilinx initially outsourced engineering operations to India by working with software and systems development company CMC Ltd. (now TCS). CMC was spun off about a year ago as an independent subsidiary of Xilinx India Technology Services Pvt. Ltd. It now employs more than a 100 engineers.
Mallik Moturi has been named the new managing director of the Indian unit.
"Xilinx India is one of our largest development facilities outside of the United States," Wim Roelandts, Xilinx chairman and CEO, said in a statement.
