Apple will open a development center in Israel focusing on semiconductors, according to reports.

The development center would be the first to be opened outside of Apple’s California headquarters, the Israeli business daily Globes reported.

Aharon Aharon, a veteran in Israel’s high-tech industry, reportedly has been hired by Apple to head the center, Globes and Calcalist reported Wednesday, citing unnamed sources.

The announcement comes as the company enters talks to acquire its first Israel-based company, Anobit Ltd. of Herzliya, a flash storage solutions provider.

Apple’s corporate vice president of research and development, Ed Frank, is currently visiting Israel, according to Globes. Calcalist reported that Frank is meeting with several Israeli high-tech companies.
