By Dinesh Ramanathan, co-CEO of NexGen Power Systems
“India is a key center, with the potential to emerge as a world leader in electronics R&D and manufacturing. Three things are required to achieve this goal – (a) subsidize the capital needed to build semiconductor fabrication facilities, (b) build the engineering skills, nurture and acquire the talent needed to drive the complex processes needed to build semiconductors, (c) build the infrastructure needed to manufacture semiconductors, such as chemicals, gases, substrates, packaging, etc. The government has put forth a welcoming start to subsidize the capital needed to set up semiconductor fabrication facilities. It will also need to focus on building out the engineering skills and infrastructure.
I believe that the government initiatives in conjunction with the talent in India is a perfect combination to make India the global hub of semiconductor in the future. With global R&D Center of Excellence and strategic manufacturing partners already located in India, NexGen Power Systems is proud to be a part of this exciting transition for the country.”
