Apple to launch silicon design centre in Germany
Apple announced its plan to establish European silicon design centre in Munich, Germany.
The company plans on investing more than 1 billion euros ($1.2 billion) in the next three years for team expansion, research and development.
Munich is Apple’s largest engineering hub in Europe. It has about 1,500 engineers working in different areas including power management design, application processors, and wireless technologies.
The expansion follows a $600 million deal struck by Apple with Anglo-German chip designer Dialog Semiconductor in 2018 to bring in-house the teams designing the main power chips used in its iPhone and other devices.
