Nordic Semiconductor has announced further to its acquisition of the entire Wi-Fi development team, core Wi-Fi expertise, and Wi-Fi IP tech assets from Imagination Technologies Group in November last year that it is well underway creating a global Wi-Fi R&D hub at a former Imagination location in Hyderabad, India. The hub already has 40 employees and Nordic is looking to grow it rapidly by attracting top R&D talent from within India.

Svein-Egil Nielsen, Nordic Semiconductor’s CTO and EVP for R&D and Strategy added, “This means that Nordic Semiconductor’s competence as it relates to Wi-Fi systems, solutions, and software will mainly reside in India with smaller hubs in other countries.What we are aiming to do is to build a center of global excellence in low power Wi-Fi and related wireless IoT technologies that is second-to-none. And exactly as we have previously done in fields such as cellular IoT where our main R&D hub is located in Finland.”

The Hyderabad Wi-Fi hub is said to have a well-equipped lab with RF chambers, Wi-Fi Alliance pre-certification facilities, and a separate interoperability lab to ensure seamless operation with other Wi-Fi vendors. Nordic’s Hyderabad Wi-Fi R&D hub is headed by Bansi Mangalwedhekar, Country Manager, and his local management team including Gaurav Kapoor who head’s Nordic’s India sales team.

A team that will be an important part of Nordic’s culture of integrity, mutual respect, empathy, and employee-friendly policies. Policies that tend to result in Nordic employees choosing to stay working with the company for many years.”
