BANGALORE, India QualCore Logic Inc.’s design center in India plans to add embedded software and driver development services to the organization. The Indian unit also said that it plans to increase staffing from 200 to 300 employees during the coming year.
Started a decade ago with a focus on FPGA-to-ASIC conversion, the Hyderabad-based design center of QualCore (Sunnyvale, Calif.) has so far completed 400 customer designs, analog IPs, GDSII tapeouts and FPGA designs. Work currently in progress includes mixed-signal, system-on-a-chip (SoC) products for control applications at 0.18-micron design rules, a 10-gigabit-per-second Ethernet switch chip at 130-nm and a family of chips to address the needs of SIM cards for wireless communications.
“Today, QualCore Logic has the unique combination of expertise for analog, digital, mixed-signal and physical design, including custom layout capabilities, and a rich IP portfolio. It has successfully demonstrated that it can achieve first-time success from specification to full-chip implementation SoCs with the most aggressive schedules, helping customers cost effectively meet their time-to-market requirements,” said Mahendra Jain, president and CEO of QualCore.
The plan for the Hyderabad subsidiary is to become the largest mixed-signal, analog IP and custom chip development company operating out of India, Jain said. To achieve this aim, the company is investing heavily in India and expanding the size of its captive development centers for its various clients, he said.
“The demand for our products and our services in the global market is seeing significant growth. There is growing demand for our IP from the domestic market as well,” said M.L.N. Acharyulu, managing director of the Indian unit.
Other designs in progress include targeting an FPGA-based intrusion detection product to a structured ASIC-based design. It is also developing an SoC with several features for the gaming segment, using a 16-bit microprocessor and a digital signal processor (DSP), he said.
