Qualcomm has announced plans to establish an Integrated Circuit (IC) Design and Engineering R D center in Singapore.
Qualcomm also will manage certain strategic business planning and development, sourcing, procurement and distribution, as well as other marketing and administrative functions, from Singapore for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies, the Company's chipset division.
"We are delighted to expand our Singapore operations by establishing a world-class IC Design and Engineering R&D facility. This facility will deliver powerful and innovative chipset designs that will continue to improve the mobile experience for consumers," said Jim Lederer, executive vice president and general manager for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies.
The new IC Design and Engineering R&D center aims to augment Qualcomm's existing product test center in Singapore.
Singapore has held a strategic importance to Qualcomm since 2000 when the Company set up its chipset distribution center in the country. In 2008, Qualcomm established its first test development center outside of the United States, enabling Singapore to become Qualcomm's development hub for the Asia Pacific region.
