Cisco has announced plans to launch a center for the design of next generation semiconductor devices in Spain. The announcement was made by Chuck Robbins, Cisco chief executive, in a meeting with H.E. Pedro Sánchez, Prime Minister of Spain.
The engineering design center will be set up under the framework of the Spanish strategic project for the Recovery and Economic Transformation of Microelectronics and Semiconductors (PERTE Microchip). The center will be co-located with the Cisco Innovation Center in Barcelona, says Cisco.
The announcement “reinforces Cisco’s commitment to support the digital ecosystem in Spain and across Europe,” Mr. Robbins said in a statement. “Semiconductors are essential to so much innovation, and our advances in this field help overcome the performance, economic, and power consumption limitations of current infrastructure.
