US-based technology company Xilinx has announced its intention to increase the workforce at its engineering site and also its decision to move into a bigger office in Hyderabad, as reported by Hans.

Xilinx, a manufacturer programmable logic devices, had acquired CMC in 2006, which earlier used to run Xilinx’s development centre.Since then, Xilinx has increased its headcount from 70 to 1,000 with plans to add another 100 full-time recruits by the end of the year. This is Xilinx’s second largest R&D centre in the world, which is spread over 2 lakh sq ft.

Ajay Naini, Director of Xilinx Hyderabad, said, “with 200 Xilinx labs in IIT, NIIT and other universities across India, we plan to hire a mix of new talents from these universities along with experienced professionals from the industry. Among the semiconductor sector, we are the largest company to hire every year.”

Apart from planning to move to a bigger space, the company has launched Alveo, a portfolio of accelerator cards designed to increase the performance in industry-standard servers across cloud and on-premise data centres.

The company also plans to capitalise on India’s growing data centre market and is looking at a 20 per cent year-on-year growth.
