Noted tech company Synopsys is set to expand their base in India by hiring 200 more employees over the course of the next two years, said a news report. The company which deals with autonomous cars, wearables, smart medical devices, secure financial services, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision and IoT, among others, had established their operations in Bengaluru as an offshore research and development centre in 1995 and added a field organisation in 1997.
Today, the company has offices in Hyderabad, Noida, Mumbai, and New Delhi, with over than 2,300 employees in India. Speaking to a national daily, Synopsys co-CEO Aart de Geus added, “On an average, we will add about 10 percent a year. It is difficult not because it is an absolute number but an absolute number multiplied by quality.”
de Geus also talked about the power of digitisation and the importance of artificial intelligence in the industry. He said, “All market segments are digitising themselves, and the semiconductor ecosystem is at the centre of making this happen… This transformation is changing and challenging the semiconductor industry as we evolve to a world of Smart Everything that is networked, mobile, and also under increased pressure to become more secure. Synopsys is both humbled and privileged to be in the midst of this transformation.”
Earlier this month, the Synopsys Users Group held a two-day conference in Bengaluru which focussed on helping engineers better address productivity challenges when designing chips and electronic systems. This year’s event featured new electronic design automation (EDA) solutions and techniques to meet the challenges posed by five-nanometer technology nodes and below.
