BANGALORE: Global chip maker AMD Corporation is setting up an India engineering centre here with an aim to design future generations of AMD microprocessors, officials said on Thursday.

AMD will invest about $5 million over the next three years in the centre, which will hire about 40 professionals this year and ramp up to 120 chip designers by 2005, AMD India president and corporate vice-president (IT, Global Supply Management), Ajay Marathe told reporters.

"Engineers at the design centre will work closely with AMD's engineering teams in the US and will help define future microprocessor designs focused on meeting the evolving user needs in India and other high-growth markets," AMD computation products group vice-president of engineering, Randy Allen said.

"We are expanding engineering operations at all our design locations," he said.

Marathe said AMD plans to leverage the talent here, to enhance its 64-bit microprocessor offerings and bring advanced technologies to a large number of customers across the world.

US-based AMD designs and produces microprocessors, flash memory devices and low-power processor solutions for the computer, communications and consumer electronics industries.
