Renesas Mobile Corporation, a supplier of advanced cellular platforms and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, announced the inauguration of its research and development (R&D) centre in Bangalore, India. This research and development centre focuses on developing 2G, 3G and 4G modem technologies. Earlier this year, Renesas Electronics opened a branch office in Bangalore in an attempt to deliver the cutting-edge technology that it offers globally, and with the aim of doubling its sales in India to $100 million by FY2012.

“Today Renesas Mobile India is a key R&D centre in wireless modem technology, performing leading edge technology development, as exemplified by the demonstrations in today’s opening ceremony, where VAMOS calls (2G), HSDPA data transfer (3G) and LTE data transfer, were demonstrated with Renesas Mobile Corporation chipsets,” says Heikki Tenhunen, Senior Vice President Renesas Mobile Corporation. “In addition to 2G, 3G, and LTE, Renesas Mobile India is performing core technology development within TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE technologies,” he adds.

According to the company’s management the opening of the R&D centre is an important step for Renesas Mobile, and underlines the opportunities Renesas Electronics and Renesas Mobile Corporation see in India.
