re: Tower bids to build wafer fab in India

All initiatives in the past decade have fizzled out. Unless the State pours in capital and provides land, water and electricity this would not take-off. And the State has other priorities than setting up a Fab and rightly so. I am quite skeptical if this would materialize. I think a more feasible option is to be to boost electronics assembly. Its has been predicted that by 2020-2025 India's electronics import will exceed Oil import. That is very scary. @ the designers and product developers in West. Guys emerging markets (esp. the GIGANTIC yet under-penetrated market in India) are real and an unfolding opportunity I am sure if the electronic eco-system develops in India it would benefit others elsewhere. It is not a zero-sum game.

Pakistan is nowhere near India technologically. But hope that this move will put India somewhere on the semiconductor map

Whether it is Hyd or Blore or Chennai, doesn't matter. Welcome to India. :) @iniewski- I agree with you to some extent [though not fully] regarding the economic feasibility. Nevertheless, I believe that "Tower' will capitalise on early bird's offer and with multiple entries - the fabs in India will be 'not just feasible but more economical'.

There is no comparison with Pakistan in technology front. but this is good news for India

India has got most of the chip design centers. Moreover India has very good market potential and its a good news too ! lets wait for the reality.

It is very good news that Indian government is moving. However, they should move much faster and also find some niche market for this product - Defence or similar.

India works well for software but I have my doubts whether the silicon fab can economically be built there...Tower is at least close geographically...I give them 1% chances of success...Kris

I will be interested to see how this pans out - both who eventually wins the contract and how the infrastructure will be set up what with power outages on a daily basis.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
