California Micro Devices Corp. has established a design centre in Chennai, India, part of its continuing collaboration with its ASIC design partner GDA Technologies Inc., which has established presence in the country.

CMD and GDA had worked together on the physical design of CMD's current display controller product, the CM5100, a serial interface chip with embedded frame buffer memory that is compliant with the VESA Mobile Display Device Interface (MDDI) standard.

"We're pleased to build upon our successful teamwork with GDA as we set up our India Design Centre," said Juergen Lutz, VP of engineering for CMD. "Our Chennai presence will enable us to tap into a large and growing pool of talented engineers, allowing us to expand our R&D bandwidth more rapidly and cost effectively than if we attempted to do so entirely in Silicon Valley."

According to Ravi Thummarukudy, VP and general manager of GDA's IC solutions business unit, "CMD has emerged as a key supplier of innovative integrated circuits that are specified by the world's leading manufacturers of mobile handsets. We look forward to leveraging our strong presence in Chennai to help CMD establish its design centre and support its goal of accelerating development programs for advanced chips aimed at mobile handset and other high volume applications."
