Now Govt of India making a clever move on setting up a fab with the help of experienced from abroad.This is a better start and soon will bring in more fabricators.

They could also use the tactic used by Taiwan and China, and draw some Indian ex-pats in the USA back home.

I am sorry if I touched a raw nerve somewhere. By backend do you mean A&T? If so I cannot list more than SPEL Semi in Chennai which is doing some volume packaging. So there are no 80-90 units in India. And if you meant design services as backend, IC design engineer do not qualify as a process engg in a wafer fab. I say that because I worked for 17 years as a fab process engg. I commented with a full and thorough understanding!

If Jaypee is involved, they are probably going to push hard for a Greater Noida or Western U.P. location not too far from Delhi NCR.

Dear Vin, I do agree about the poor infrastructure, but when it comes to lack of skilled manpower, I disagree with you. If you look around you will find most of the backend operations for semiconductor cos are outsourced to India. You have atleast 80-90 semiconductor start ups with projects for the Top notch Semicons. This is just a start. Try not be a pessimist without knowing the actual picture around you.

With a poor infrastructure, lack of skilled manpower and the cream of engineering manpower with a lack of interest in anything other than software and financial services, India has a mountain to climb. If a cement manufacturer is able to see a future with all the odds stacked against such a venture, I can only smell a scam of humongous proportions!

Jaypee is the money and the Indian company with a strategic interest (a bit like Formosa Plastic in Taiwan). Tower's contract to build and operate the fab would be with Jaypee, if the bid is successful.

Owning a fab is a strategic move as chip supply is now central to our digital life.

Was there any hints about the location yet? Not sure how JayPee associates gets involved in this. What role will they play in this?
