Advanced Micro Devices on Thursday announced the opening of a new design centre in Hyderabad, India, featuring world-class lab facilities dedicated to furthering both software and hardware innovations at the heart of AMD's accelerated processing units (APUs).
“AMD is committed to providing our customers with innovative, tailored technology solutions that empower people and deliver exceptional experiences. Our Hyderabad design centre will play an important part in that mission as the team works in concert with our other design centers around the world to deliver AMD's next round of innovative products,” said Rory Read, chief executive officer of AMD.
Located at Raheja Mindspace, Hitec City, Madhapur, in the heart of Hyderabad's technology hub, the new facility features 175 thousand square feet of world-class engineering labs, equipment and office space for the hundreds of engineers who work there to deliver differentiated system-on-chips (SoCs) for AMD and its global customers. AMD also has a design centre in Bangalore, as well as sales offices in New Delhi and Mumbai.
"India is a crucial market for AMD, and our design centers in both Hyderabad and Bangalore are key design and development hubs for our business. Like our talented engineering teams around the world, the engineers working in AMD's new Hyderabad design center are every bit as focused and committed to the sustained delivery of hardware and software innovations that can help drive the company's business forward," said Madhusudan Atre, corporate vice president of design engineering at AMD.
