Idaho, US-based semiconductor company Micron Technology has launched its global development centre in Hyderabad.
The semiconductor company also aims to hire about 2,000 employees in India within the next few years, according to a statement.
The Hyderabad office spans across 350,000 square feet including six purpose-built design and verification labs.
Micron says its development centre in India will help it access a highly educated and talented workforce. Its employees in Hyderabad design and develop high-quality, cutting-edge memory and storage solutions.
The new site will be used to develop technologies in areas like artificial intelligence and machine learning.
“We’re delighted to launch our global development centre in Hyderabad and expand our team of engineers, researchers, developers and IT specialists. Leveraging global talent, like our new Hyderabad team members, helps us drive innovation and stay at the forefront of emerging memory technologies,” said Sanjay Mehrotra, chief executive officer, Micron.
Micron has also awarded a $100,000 grant to the Akshaya Patra Foundation’s midday-meal program through the Micron Foundation. The Akshaya Patra Foundation runs a school lunch programme across India.
Micron Technology produces dynamic random access memory (DRAM), synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM), flash memory, solid-state drive (SSD) and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) image sensing chips.
Micron had first expanded its footprint across India with its operations site in Bengaluru in April this year.
