Dear editor, instead of givig article like this, provide data. Provide how much business is generated. Semiconductor requires depth and capability which is unlke software sector.And the fact is no of capable engineers in India is way too less.When I say capable engineers its not that who do a simulation learning from Book what this Btech ya Mtech teaches.Its about people who make things work.Integrate a system.Unless we have more people there we can not see a explosion in this industry. Also the market dynamics is so harsh in semiconductor..that unless u sell soc 20$ u can not support your infra..A large chunk of what goes to the licensee..cad tools. So I would say India to concentrate on writing software for cad at present

I agree..this is all about publicity stunt..some company give money to print this type of article...i agree about Mindtree, Einfochips and KPIT is not getting engineers because of their poor management values.

Nothing against Wipro or any other company. But is it not true that since the value of dollar started rising, and those employees of Wipro who don't have work, just to keep them ib billing, they are shifted to some other field. I have lots of friends who are in this situation.

I disagree with you. There might be people who do not have work, but there is also a lot of work for which they do not have people with the right skills. So, in general it is not really a false publicity stunt.

This story is all false. Lots of people in Wipro have no work. Engineers working in VLSI are moved to test banking software. The above one is a cheap publicity article. Mindtree, Einfochips and KPIT is not getting engineers because of their poor management values.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
