Intel is building a new ‘smart and green’ facility in India.
The $178 million design house will be located at the company’s existing 44-acre campus, in Karnataka, and will further cement India’s position as Intel’s second largest R&D base outside America.
It will be used to spearhead ‘chip design’ and for ‘verification purposes’ Intel said. And the 620,000 sq. ft. of space, which will include lab capacity, will be an exemplary example of sustainability – equipped with IoT technologies, smart lighting and powered by renewable sources.
“Intel India plays a very strategic role in Intel’s growth, with significant contributions to Intel’s technology and product leadership. We are excited about expanding our best-in-class R&D infrastructure in India that will enable us to continue our momentum in doing cutting-edge innovation and design work from India. We look forward to working with the vibrant ecosystem in India and contribute to the country’s innovation journey,” said Nivruti Rai, Intel India general manager.
