AMD opens Indian engineering center
EE Times is reporting that AMD will open an engineering design center in Bangalore, India. The center will initially house a staff of only 40, but AMD is looking to bring on an additional 80 engineers by the end of next year. AMD hopes the engineering center will help spread the 64-bit gospel, but that's not all:
"We are working to bring the center online and up-to-speed quickly, and expect that our India engineering team will work in conjunction with our U.S. teams to produce future generations of AMD microprocessors," said Randy Allen, vice president of engineering for AMD's Computation Products Group.
Speaking of future product generations, The Inquirer noticed
that AMD is looking to fill several positions in its K9 development and support teams.
