AMD, a leading multinational semiconductor company, recently opened its largest global design center, the Technostar research and development campus, in Bengaluru. This inauguration is part of a substantial investment of US$400 million over the next five years in India, which was initially announced at the Semicon India 2023 event.
Spanning an impressive 500,000 square feet, the Technostar campus is set to accommodate approximately 3,000 engineers and will specialize in the development of CPUs, GPUs, adaptive SoCs, and FPGAs for personal computers and data centers. The facility boasts a cutting-edge research and development lab, a visitor demo center, and collaborative huddle spaces.
Jaya Jagadish, India Country Head for AMD, emphasized the company's growth in India, stating that the India Design Centre began with just a few employees in 2004, and today, 25% of AMD’s global workforce is based in India. These employees are instrumental in supporting the development of AMD's key products for data center, gaming, PC, and embedded customers. The new Technostar facility represents a significant milestone in AMD's journey to be a major contributor to the advancement of semiconductors.
