Vision Summit explores strategies driving semicon industry growth

A couple of contrasting views over the fab technology direction that India should follow was reported from the ISA Vision Summit 2007. While one view stated that it’ll be prudent for India to initially establish manufacturing capacities in older technologies and address those requirements which are not addressed by the more competitive larger multinational companies. Else it will fall prey to overcapacity problem.

A conflicting view presented some of the alternate views of addressing the overcapacity situation. In India’s case, it can be by focusing on technologies which are driven by applications of the products required by the local market i.e. applications are the fab techno drivers and not any predetermined process geometry.
