July 25, 2005–AMI Semiconductor has expanded its design and development capabilities with the opening of an offshore design center in India. Based in Bangalore, the new design center has been established in partnership with Indian product design specialist TATA ELXSI Ltd.
In addition to increasing its worldwide engineering resources, the center also further strengthens AMIS methodologies in the area of design verification.
“Choosing to create a new design facility in India gives us access to a large pool of talented resources that can support our growing worldwide design and development requirements,” said Tony Denayer, senior VP of product development for AMIS. “Setting up long-term partnerships is part of the AMIS approach to reaching our growth objectives, and TATA ELXSI is a strong partner with solid expertise in silicon design and verification.”
The design center is staffed by TATA ELXSI engineers working under the leadership of Erik Nilson Comparini. Erik has been with AMIS for 14 years. Before moving to Bangalore he was the manager of the AMIS Munich Design Center.
