Taiwanese MediaTek, the fourth largest semiconductor company in the world, has announced a partnership with Purdue University.
Together, they will build a new chip design center in West Lafayette in the University’s Discovery Park District. MediaTek wants to work with Purdue to create a new chip design focus in their education, also to jointly research next-generation computing and chip design.
“As a global company, MediaTek has literally a world of options at its fingertips, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that they’ve chosen Indiana to grow and build the foundation and future of the semiconductor industry alongside the brightest minds in the world,” said Gov. Holcomb. “MediaTek chose a thriving, top-rated university with innovation expertise and a strong talent pipeline that will power these quality careers for decades to come.”
MediaTek plans to create up to 30 high paying jobs, which prompted the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) to commit an investment of up to $1.4 million in the form of incentive-based tax credits
“We believe strongly that being in Indiana means we’ll have access to some of the best engineering talent in the world,” said Dr. Kou-Hung Lawrence Loh, corporate senior vice president of MediaTek and president of MediaTek USA.
