Apache Design Solutions Inc. announced its plans to expand its recently-started operations in India to play a more major role in the company's global plans.

Apache said it plans to double its head count in India in 2007, and may look into the possibility of adding a second R&D centre somewhere in the country.

Veteran EDA executive and former Cadence Designs Systems Inc. sales executive Prashant Pahade has been tapped to head Indian operations as the company's managing director. Joint research programs with select local institutes are also planned, according to the company.

"India has been recognised as a region with engineering expertise in the high-technology semiconductor and IC markets," said Apache CEO Andrew Yang. "All the major EDA companies already have operations in India, and the bigger ones such as Cadence are known to employ about a thousand engineering staff at the Indian subsidiary operations."
