Rambus Inc., the developer of high-speed chip interfaces, announced the opening of its new design center located in Bangalore, India. The company said the move was conducted to better serve its growing customer base in Asia and also develop certain new products.
The Rambus engineering teams in Bangalore will focus primarily on the development of additional PHYs and cores based on Rambus’ technologies, including work in the areas of industry-standard designs such as PCI Express, Fibre Channel, Serial ATA and DDR2 memory controller designs.
“To help our customers meet the increasing demands of the global marketplace, we are expanding our business to be more accessible on a global scale,” said Geoff Tate, Chairman of the Rambus Board. “The wealth of engineering talent in the Bangalore region convinced us that this is the right location to establish a presence in India and will help get our foundry-based interface designs to more customers to solve their challenging problems in a cost-efficient manner.”
Rambus plans to hire 50 employees at the Bangalore facility by year’s end to work on repeatable cells and cores designed for multiple process technologies.
In 2004, Rambus opened a design center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina when it acquired serial link assets from Velio Communications Inc. Rambus also has regional offices in Tokyo, Japan and Taipei, Taiwan. The new Rambus Bangalore office is located at 30, Prathiba Complex, 4th B Cross, 5th Block, Industrial Area, Koramangala, Bangalore.
