Broadcom's Indian operations have undergone further expansion. Broadcom has expanded and upgraded its facilities in Bangalore and Hyderabad. Broadcom-India currently employs over 500 engineers at locations in Hyderabad and Bangalore, which they say represent one of the company's largest engineering concentrations outside of the U.S.; a similar situation as with many other semiconductor companies based in U.S.
"This expansion of our facilities in both cities demonstrates Broadcom's commitment and recognition of India as a key contributor to Broadcom's growth globally," said Rajiv Kapur, managing director of Broadcom India. "Broadcom India's engineers are key members of our global engineering teams for a number of our products and have played an integral role in our global business success."
Rajiv Ramaswami, Executive VP and General Manager of Network Infrastructure Group, Broadcom said in an earlier interview with our editor "We have a full complete chip design team. The team here will feel exactly like a team we have in the US. When you talk about mobile data coming through the backhaul - whether it is 2G or 3G - there is more backhaul transferred - the backhaul traffic is all going to the Ethernet and at the end we are using our chips - all these chips are being done (designed) here."
The release says, VLSI functions in Bangalore touch all aspects of a chip from architecture and spec, through front-end and back-end design, to post-silicon characterization and bring up.
The 175,000 square-foot Bangalore Center and 48,000 square-foot Hyderabad Center are into development of chips, software and reusable IP.
