Cypress Introduces State-of-the-art Chip Center in Hyderabad, India

6/20/2003 - Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: CY) 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 U.S. 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 (NPD) group. “Cypress’s 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 U.S. universities.”

“In a recent feature article on emerging global cities, National Geographic magazine described Hyderabad as the next Silicon Valley,” Keswick said. “The Hyderabad site offers us the benefits of proximity to our Bangalore facility and to other, major, India-based hardware design and manufacturing companies, along with a fully developed utilities, transportation and communications infrastructure.”

"We are pleased that Cypress Semiconductor, a billion-dollar, multinational design and manufacturing company, has chosen to establish a state-of-the-art chip design center here,” said Randeep Sudan, special secretary to the chief minister and CEO of the Agency for Promoting and Facilitating Investment in Remote Services and Technology (APFIRST). “We look forward to an evolving, symbiotic relationship with Cypress and to the challenge of supporting the company in all its endeavors in Hyderabad.”

In addition to its design facilities, Cypress has two chip fabrication facilities in the U.S. in Minnesota and Texas, and a state-of-the-art assembly-&-test plant near Cavite City in the Philippines. Cypress’s design facility in Bangalore currently has 116 employees working on designs for static random access memory (SRAM) chips, framers, clocks and control-communications devices.
