This article stinks of sarcasm and a negative bias towards Indian semiconductor industry. If the authors do not believe in what they are posting then why bother unless they want to be the electronics community's version of a tabloid. There's no denying that the Indian efforts in establishing fabs is a quagmire of bureaucracy and poor planning but I am sure they did not approach EEtimes to market their idea.

Well said. I've never considered EET anything but an industry tabloid -- and this isn't their first or only "journalism" piece to qualify them for the tabloid class. Maybe someday they'll even start selling themselves at grocery store checkout counters.

Too many mosquitoes in India to set up a cleanroom there. Don't the bureaucrats know this?

The article does shows a smack of sarcasm but its the way a country wants to go about fabs. The authors as an individual would have sometime in their life too would have made an attempt to learn something and surely people would have mocked at them. This is precisely what is happening with India, it is learning new technologies and creating a market. Make no mistake the many companies from your country will be more than willing and queuing up to set up their shop once this is achieved. Secondly, I do not know understand what mosquitoes got to do with setting up a cleanroom. Mosquitoes are a problem anywhere - whether its India or America or any part of world. So el

If too many bed bugs cant be a problem in america then too many mosquitoes will surely not be a problem in India

I don't see any sarcasm, but I sense a deep sense of hurt in you. That no fabs did set up in the Fab City in Hyderabad and any where else is the cause of that hurt? I saw that ad in the Economic Times and I am very skeptical of any serious replies. There will be dubious characters trying to make a fast buck. If any fab comes up, we should all cheer. Till then lets wait and see.

I do not understand the need for Indian Govt to seek to set up a fab in India. When the world trend is for Fab-less design. India can as well do without a fab. So many foundries exist today worldwide that India is better off using their capacities and concentrate more on design where India has a huge qualified manpower and design expertise. If there is a sufficient pull the private industry giants like Tata, Birla and Ambani have sufficient financial muscle and project execution skills to set up such Fabs in India. It is definitely not the Indian government's cup of tea.

We do operate class 10 clean rooms in many facilities in India. I think you are probably not aware that India builds aerospace components/systems which need clean rooms.

we have thousands of electronics engineers comming out each year ,and it is a dream of hundreads of engineers like me who are intrested in backend to actually work in the FAB unit . its a good move by the government , the only resource missing till date to setup a FAB was governments will. now with governments will clearly showcased i feel this will materialise .
