Tensilica Inc. has expanded its R&D centre in Pune, India. The research and development unit has now transferred to a new building, which is twice the size of its original facility. The company is now looking into doubling the workforce of the centre to at least 50 per cent.

According to Tensilica, over the past six years, employees at its Pune R&D centre have become essential developers of Tensilica's dataplane processors (DPUs), which are used by chip designers to perform complex signal processing tasks, such as audio and base band processing.

"The engineers in our Pune design centre are an integral part of our R&D team, and they've tackled some of the most demanding projects," stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica's president and CEO. "We've asked them to take on several challenges and they've proven they have the background to do an excellent job in many engineering areas."

Some of the projects Tensilica engineers have been working on in Pune include: audio and speech codecs for Tensilica's HiFi audio digital signal processors (DSPs), libraries, design verification, application engineering, and the integrated development environment (IDE) for Tensilica's DPUs.

"I'm extremely proud of the team we've assembled here in Pune," stated Subodh Shukla, director of the Pune R&D centre. "We've been able to hire some of the top talent from across India because we can offer engineers the opportunity to grow and learn about leading edge processor/DSP architecture and chip design."
