“Apple’s hardware development operations are expanding to the Orlando, Fla., area, where the company apparently plans to design, build and test custom chips for future devices,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“While most of Apple’s internal hardware development is housed out of the company’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., a number of interesting Orlando-based job openings were noticed this week by AppleInsider,” Hughes reports. “Specifically, seven positions advertised by Apple are related to developing and testing processor hardware, while another Orlando-based job seeks candidates who can develop drivers for graphics processors.”
Hughes reports, “It’s unlikely that any jobs are related to Apple’s acquisition of AuthenTec, a maker of fingerprint scanning technology headquartered in Melbourne, Florida… But together with the addition of AuthenTec and the new Orlando-based positions, Apple’s presence in Florida is growing. Just last week, AppleInsider also discovered that Apple was hiring personnel for its ‘Melbourne Design Center,’ a position likely connected to AuthenTec.”
