Semiconductor Revolution : Tata Electronics and Synopsys Drive Innovation in Dholera Fab

10th July 2024  Source by https://pune.news/

Tata Electronics, spearheading India’s ambitious semiconductor manufacturing venture in Gujarat’s Dholera, has forged a crucial partnership with US-based Synopsys. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Tata Electronics and Synopsys aims to accelerate the production capabilities of India’s first semiconductor fabrication plant.

Strategic Collaboration with Synopsys

Synopsys, renowned for its electronic design automation and silicon IP solutions, will collaborate with Tata Electronics to establish a robust foundry design platform. This collaboration is set to enhance chip development processes at Tata Electronics’ AI-enabled semiconductor fab in Dholera. Key initiatives include integrating factory automation, implementing data analytics, setting up TCAD flow, developing process design kits, and advancing IP development.

Visionary Leadership and Strategic Intent

Randhir Thakur, CEO and Managing Director of Tata Electronics, highlighted the strategic importance of partnering with Synopsys. He emphasized Synopsys’ expertise in semiconductor design and services as pivotal in accelerating Tata Electronics’ journey towards semiconductor manufacturing excellence.

Milestones and Investment Commitments

The Union Cabinet’s approval earlier this year paved the way for Tata Group’s significant investment of INR 91,000 crore into the semiconductor fab project in Dholera, in collaboration with Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp (PSMC) from Taiwan. The facility aims to produce 50,000 wafers per month, catering to sectors such as high-power computing, electric vehicles, telecommunications, defense, consumer electronics, automobiles, and power electronics.

Technological Advancements and Global Reach

Already making strides, Tata Electronics has initiated semiconductor chip exports from its Bengaluru R&D center to partners in Japan, the US, and Europe. The company is also nearing the final stages of designing semiconductor chips ranging from 28nm to 65nm.

Industry Impact and Future Prospects

Tata Electronics views this collaboration with Synopsys as pivotal in establishing India’s semiconductor manufacturing capabilities. With parallel investments in a fab plant in Assam’s Jagiroad and amid a burgeoning global semiconductor market valued over $150 billion, Tata Group’s foray into this space underscores strategic alignment with India’s semiconductor initiatives.

Government Support and Sectoral Growth

Driven by India’s Semiconductor India program and other government initiatives, the semiconductor sector is poised for robust growth. Initiatives like Zoho’s plans for a semiconductor plant in Tamil Nadu and Micron Technology’s investments in Gujarat reflect growing momentum in India’s semiconductor ecosystem.
