Intel India Development Centre (IIDC) is planning to add another 2000 people to its rolls over the next three years, says IIDC director and site manager Manni Kantipudi. The current strength of IIDC is around 1000.

India has emerged as a design and development house for the Internet and the application and system software developer community here was very strong, Mr Kantipudi said.

There are 19 Intel divisions in India and IIDC is the largest non-manufacturing site outside the US.

IIDC works on IA (Intel Architecture) 32 and 64, the server space, networking and communications and Intels new business - ASIC (application specific integrated circuits) design services, ultra-wide band chip, bluetooth and the 802.11 technology. IIDC is also providing engineering services for network processors for the Asian market.

We have been doing joint development and research work with local vendors and universities. We are looking at sharing with the community beyond specs, says Mr Kantipudi.

With this intention the company is holding the third Intel Developer Forum (IDF) conference. After two IDF conferences in Bangalore it moves to Mumbai. Themed Advancing the Digital Universe, the IDF will be held on October 29.

The developer community in Mumbai would have a chance to hear Intel chief technology officer and vice-president Pat Gelsinger who will speak at the conference.

Abhi Talwalkar, general manager of enterprise platform group, and Tom Franz, vice-president and general manager, network processing group would also be in Mumbai.
