Cypress Launches Design Center in India

June 19, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (San Jose, CA) announced that it is launching a state-of-the-art, chip design center in Hyderabad, India. The new site will complement Cypress's current Indian design center in Bangalore. Cypress currently operates 18 design centers in the US and in countries such as England, Ireland, Turkey and India. The new facility is expected to be operational by year-end.

"The Hyderabad center will enable Cypress to tap into the city's enormous engineering talent pool," said Paul Keswick, senior vice president of Cypress's New Product Development group. "Cypress' philosophy on the development of new design resources has long been to identify pockets of engineering expertise outside Silicon Valley and to locate facilities nearby to draw upon that expertise. We have successfully used that approach at international locations, such as India and Ireland, and at locations in proximity to major US universities."
