The tech conglomerate NVIDIA today inaugurated an expanded, state-of-the-art development centre in Pune with a ceremony attended by the company’s co-founder and CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang.
The Pune Development Centre will play a key role in NVIDIA’s global product development and innovation strategy. The centre has facilities and engineering teams that work on software development, testing and chip attachment, and driver development for a number of NVIDIA products.
First opened in 2005, the Pune Development Centre houses hundreds of employees with over 140 patents to their credit. The facility is the largest outside its corporate offices in Silicon Valley spread over 350,000 square feet.
“In a world rich with displays and cameras, visual computing is more important than ever. NVIDIA is dedicated to continuing to lead this field, by attracting the world’s best engineers and sustaining a culture where they can do the best work of their lives,” said Huang. “Pune is one of NVIDIA’s major sites. We’ve grown 15-fold here in the past decade. Today’s opening is testimony to Pune’s pivotal role in our company and our continued leadership in visual computing.”
