Bangalore: Leading chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) thursday expanded its research and development (R&D) operations in India by opening a silicon design facility in the country's IT hub.

AMD chairman and CEO Hector Ruiz, who inaugurated the new facility, told reporters that its Indian subsidiary plays a critical role in the company's global design network, including development of its most advanced, next-generation processing solutions.

"Indian engineers play a critical role in our global design network. As their role and importance increases in the region, we intend to increase our headcount for future growth. This 350-seat facility gives them world-class equipment and resources to excel," said Ruiz.

He said the new facility would be vital in designing and delivering industry-leading solutions tailored to the needs of its customers all over the world.

The R&D teams in Bangalore are playing a lead role on AMD's first 45-nanometre (nm) quad-core microprocessor, code-named Shanghai.

The teams are also involved in design testing and optimisation of the new chip.

The R&D teams played a vital role in intellectual property issues for AMD's first quad-core microprocessor called Barcelona.

AMD India managing director Alok Ohrie said the expansion demonstrated the confidence of the parent company in the delivery capabilities of the India R&D teams.

"During the past six years, we have grown our market share and made significant contributions to AMD's global efforts," Ohrie added.
