Hsinchu, Taiwan—April 12, 2022 — Andes Technology Corporation (TWSE: 6533; SIN: US03420C2089; ISIN: US03420C1099), a leading supplier of high efficiency, low-power 32/64-bit RISC-V processor cores and Founding Premier member of RISC-V International, today announces a partnership with Excelmax Technologies Pvt Ltd to represent, promote and support all Andes RISC-V products in India.
India, the world’s sixth largest economy, is witnessing significant growth in electronic manufacturing services over the past few years. Due to the large and growing population of Indian engineers in Silicon Valley, the bonding between international tier one high-tech companies and India is getting closer. Favorable government new policies provide more incentives to home grown SoC design houses and international chipmakers to grow and pursue semiconductor design and manufacture for local as well as international markets. India also plans to set up domestic design companies and invests in developing high-tech clusters. The strong demand for advanced chips is accelerating the growth of the SoC development market, which is expected to be at nearly 10% CAGR.
Excelmax, headquartered at Bangalore and founded by industry experts in the field of VLSI and embedded domain, is a product engineering services house focusing in the areas of ASIC/FPGA and embedded design. Excelmax has strong presence in India in terms of wide client base across all verticals, has grown exponentially, and poises to grow further aiming to be a premier solutions provider catering to semiconductor industry.
