I was surpised to see that someone bothers transfering 1um CMOS process...if I recall properly that process was developed in late 80ies...still going strong after 30 years! Kris

It is very encouraging to know that the Indian semiconductor market is estimated to grow to 100 billion in 2020. I think the semiconductor market in India was $6.5 billion in 2010 and is estimated to grow to $9.8 billion by 2012 (~50%). With this same growth rate, it might reach $50 billion by 2020. Is $100 billion not too optimistic?
