semiconductor ecosystem

in India.

The Center is said to enable early pilots, talent, and capability development for the upcoming India Collaborative Engineering Center including validation, process engineering, lab management, and collaboration with academia and suppliers. It is claimed to add new capabilities to enable end-to-end design, characterization, and qualification of semiconductor equipment. In this lab, Applied Materials demonstrated the capability to process 300-mm wafers in IVC; a first for private industry in India.
Centre’s vision
“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India’s semiconductor ecosystem has achieved significant growth over the past few years,” said Vaishnaw. He added “The envisaged semiconductor ecosystem is going to play a huge part in making India a developed nation. The India Validation Center is a testament to the dedication and effectiveness of our approach to build India’s resiliency in chip manufacturing and Applied Materials has been a trusted partner in enabling the Indian Semiconductor dream. Almost every consumer tech product that runs on a chip today has Applied Materials engineering imprinted in them. This Center will further help develop manufacturing capabilities in the sector and exemplify the trust that global companies have placed in India.”

“We believe this is India’s time to shine, and Applied Materials’ India Validation Center is one of the many milestones in our innovation journey,” said Prabu Raja, President of the Semiconductor Products Group at Applied Materials. He added, “We will continue to develop our capabilities in India to support customers and work with supply chain partners to strengthen the local ecosystem and help India’s semiconductor industry succeed.”
“It is an exciting time to be part of the semiconductor value chain in India, and we are committed to developing the country’s semiconductor ecosystem,” said Satheesh Kuppurao, Vice President of Business Development and Country President of Applied Materials India. “The commissioning of our India Validation Center will enable us to coach, train, and demonstrate higher-level applications development work that is needed to support the growing semiconductor ecosystem in India.”
