Capgemini said it facilitates the convergence of products, software, data, and services for its clients and silicon engineering services play a key role in this.

With this acquisition, Capgemini will be able to significantly increase its semiconductor presence in Europe, it added.

HDL Design House president & CEO Predrag Markovic said: “After 22 years of building and developing world-class expertise for each and every step of systems on a chip implementation, and continuously increasing our capabilities in chip design services, while working with major semiconductor companies on leading-edge development projects, HDL Design House begins a new chapter in its evolution.”

Capgemini engineering CEO and group executive board member William Roze said: “With digital now inside everything, semiconductors are at the heart of companies’ business transformations. HDL Design House is a leader in silicon innovation.

“It will strengthen our team and presence in Eastern Europe to further meet global demand for the latest generation of high-performance and ‘intelligent’ products.”

In July this year, Capgemini joined forces with Microsoft to launch a generative artificial intelligence (AI) solution, called Azure Intelligent App Factory.
