Intel India marks its 20th Anniversary by inaugurating its new design facility in Bengaluru
Furthering its commitment to advancing research & development (R&D) and innovation in the country, Intel India has marked its 20th anniversary with the inauguration of its latest state-of-the-art design house, SRR4, at its Bengaluru campus. It also announced key initiatives to promote innovation in the technology ecosystem and support inclusive participation of women in the industry.
Built with an investment of approximately Rs.1,100 crore, the newest facility located at Intel’s 44-acre campus on Sarjapur Ring Road (SRR) in Bengaluru, has 620,000 sq. ft. of space, including 100,000 sq. ft. of world-class lab infrastructure. Extending Intel’s R&D presence in India, it will house technologists who work on cutting-edge engineering across hardware and software.
A smart and green building, SRR4 is the second building in India to be constructed with the innovative “One Storey High Technology”, with each floor being built on the ground, then lifted and attached to the top of the building. This technology resulted in the reduction of scheduled construction time by up to 60% compared to traditional methods.
The new building is equipped with IoT-based smart features, including smart lights and real-time occupancy management, as well as innovative energy harvesting tiles installed at the entrance of the building that generate and store energy as people walk into the building. In addition, it uses renewable energy sources like solar and fuel cells for power generation, which is expected to meet 40% of the building’s power demand and reduce CO2 emissions by 37%.
The state-of-the-art design facility was inaugurated by Shri Manoj Sinha, Minister of State (IC) for Communications and Minister of State for Railways, Government of India, and Bob Swan, CFO & interim CEO of Intel Corporation, in the presence of many other delegates from the government, industry and academia.
Intel Corporation CFO & interim CEO Bob Swan said, “This year, Intel celebrated its 50th anniversary, marking a half-century of innovation that has profoundly changed the world. This milestone is an opportunity to embrace a new Intel, a different, fast-paced, global company that's adapting, growing and building the future. Intel India has grown tremendously over the past 20 years to become a strategic site and a key growth engine for Intel as it transforms to a data-centric company.”
“Over the last 20 years, Intel India has been relentlessly focusing on advancing technology development and innovation in the country by working closely with the vibrant ecosystem in India. Intel India plays a strategic role in Intel’s growth by making significant contributions to Intel’s technology and product portfolio in areas such as Cloud, Client, Graphics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), 5G and Advanced Driver Assistance System,” said Nivruti Rai, Country Head of Intel India and VP of Data Center Group, Intel Corporation.
In an effort to accelerate innovation and research, Intel India in collaboration with the Government of India is instituting national-level awards named in honour of former President of India and eminent scientist, late Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. These annual awards have been introduced with the intent to recognize and celebrate the pioneering work and contributions made by distinguished scientists and innovators across three categories:
Intel India is part of Women Innovators, Social Leaders and Entrepreneurs (WISE), a collaborative initiative with key women leaders who offer leadership, mentoring, and development opportunities for women entrepreneurs and innovators in an effort to increase women’s participation in growing India’s economy.
