HYDERABAD, India, Mar. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today underscored its commitment to the emerging, high-growth market and its growing employee base in India with the inauguration of a new, expanded Xilinx India site in Hi-Tech city. The 131,000 square-foot office building is more than double the size of the previous site to accommodate engineering labs and collaboration space for end-to-end product development, a larger, energy-efficient data center, and expanded facilities for customer and employee events.
Hosted by Xilinx President and CEO, Moshe Gavrielov, Senior Vice President of Programmable Platforms Development, Victor Peng, and Xilinx India Site Director and CTO, Vamsi Boppana, the inaugural event began with a traditional lamplighting ceremony to mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Xilinx India.
The Xilinx India site, which represents the largest R&D centre outside of the company's U.S. headquarters, is a critical contributor to Xilinx's success as the world's leading provider of 'all programmable' technologies and devices. This includes its newest, industry leading portfolio of 28nm 7 series and Zynq™-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) families, which enable breakthroughs in price/performance/watt and programmable systems integration.
Currently, more than 400 employees in Hyderabad report into Xilinx's Programmable Platforms Development (PPD) and Worldwide Technical Support groups, which are global organizations responsible for development and delivery of the company's flagship programmable platforms and support of local, regional and multi-national customers in India. The expansion and increasing role of the Xilinx India engineering team is well aligned to the National Policy on Electronics goals to transform India into a global R&D hub.
"We're proud to commemorate the opening of our new Hyderabad site today and to celebrate the incredible contributions of our employees in India," said Gavrielov at today's inauguration ceremonies. "The Xilinx India engineering team will continue to play a pivotal role in our success as part of Xilinx's world-class PPD engineering organization. Notably, more than half the Zynq engineering team is based in India, with some aspects entirely designed and verified in India. The India team has sole ownership and development responsibility for significant aspects of our next-generationtool suite accelerating programmable design productivity."
