Bangalore, Feb 22 : Nvidia Corporation, the US-based and Nasdaq-listed technology company, Tuesday opened its India design centre here as part of its expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.

Modelled on the company's global design centres, the Indian facility will focus on designing advanced graphics and digital media processors for a wide-range of platforms.

It currently employs about 30 engineers and plans to increase the number in the coming months.

"India is an exciting market and well-positioned for phenomenal growth. It is also home to some of the brightest engineers as is evident from the number of Indian techies working with us in the US and elsewhere," Nvidia CEO Jen Hsun-Huang told reporters at the opening of the design centre.

Since its founding 12 years ago, the $2.2-billion Nvidia has invested over $1 billion in research and development (R&D).

As it expands into new product areas, including wireless media processors for mobile phones, the company intends to invest at least $500 million annually in research and development worldwide, including India.

Nvidia's products enhance the end-user experience on consumer and professional computing devices.

Its graphics processing units, media and communications processors and wireless media processors are incorporated into a variety of platforms, including consumer and enterprise computers, notebooks, workstations, mobile phones and video game consoles.
