    AMD today announced the opening of an advanced microprocessor development facility in Fort Collins, CO. Dubbed the “Mile High Design Center” (MHDC), the facility is the latest in AMD’s growing international network of chip design hubs. AMD plans to use the increased flexibility and efficiency provided by the MHDC to accelerate the introduction of next-generation microprocessors that are more closely aligned with the evolving priorities of customers, partners and end users worldwide.
    Jeff VerHeul, Corporate Vice President, Silicon Design Engineering said.

    AMD was welcomed into the Fort Collins community at a recent reception hosted by the Northern Colorado Economic Development Corporation and the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce, and attended by elected officials, academics, business and community leaders. At the reception, AMD demonstrated its commitment to the community with a contribution to the Ft. Collins Discovery Science Center. Mark Porter of AMD was officially named the MHDC site leader. Mark brings more than 24 years of microprocessor design and industry experience, and he has been with AMD for the past five years. Most recently, Porter was the leader of the cross-site Design Program Management team, and also served as the interim lead of the CAD development organization.

    AMD also operates microprocessor design centers in Sunnyvale, CA; Austin, TX; Boxborough, MA; Bangalore, India; and Dresden, Germany.
