    yup agreed
    its all depend on the country's policies and System.
    present indian system is much favourable for it but still need too much improvement.
    Reliance (Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group) didn't start from basic in ship building. They just takeover PIPAVAV SHIPYARD

    hopefully, NDA's second term which may be after 2019 (if they won majority in assembly again) , may pass some strict rules and shift the Indian Industrial Policy to a new level.
    till then we have to wait for it.

    According to Russian forum they recently started using 55nm chips and will move to 40nm and to reach 28 nm it will take more years.... They are even behind China..... Because of sanctions.

    We should buy fabrication equipments from Taiwan and South Korea and start fabrication in India as soon as possible.
    But development of electronics industry in India is not possible without American help.

    And without good electronics industry we can not make 5th generation fighters and UCAVs.

    Really? Big words? Defense expenditure is something one counts, especially the critical technology without which nothing will work? Don't speak of money when it comes to critical technology costs unless it is too expensive. I am not seeking a grand fabrication unit producing millions of chips a year. AMCA, Tejas etc needs only smaller scale manufacturing.

    Can you explain why will fabrication costs double in 3-4 years? We are unlikely to go beyond 14nm anytime soon. 14nm is almost the limit and maybe one more 10nm is left. We can't go to uni molecular layer chips. Also, maximum of 22nm technology should be enough for substituting Indian needs. Again, the question of greesing hands don't come if SEZ or some special zones are opened, government invests 70-80% of cost and the project is speeded up to be open in 2 years. Once open, it is difficult to close down. Fabrication unit is not a mining operation type business to have too many problems. Just saying that Indian investment needs are twice as international standards is another absurd statement taken out of thin air.

    By the way, the wafer fabrication unit needs about 6 billion dollars as of now and IC fabrication needs 2 billion dollars each for analog and digital. This is for commercial scale manufacturing. For smaller scale, costs may vary. Since it is a critical requirement, I don't see any reason for government to not invest. No private player will invest in India at such huge costs. If India wants it, it must invest the money itself, even if necessary as a DRDO sub organisation and part of defence needs

    Russian military uses older technology and not the recent ones. The advantage of older technology is that the 180nm and 90nm wafer is thick and can withstand higher temperature, is vigorously tested for reliability. The temperature of the processor is not just because of processor operations but also operating temperature, engine heat etc. When AMCA is flying, its body is bound to get heated by drag, its internals are bound to get heated by engine heat as well as the heated outer body transmitting it inside. The 22nm, 28nm chips are thin and fragile. Even a small number of errors in the semiconductor can get exaggerated when the temperature rises and may cause problems. The medical equipment, military equipment etc don't use modern processors. F35 uses processors of 1995 powerpc and F22 uses 1990s type processor - something like i386.

    Americans and Koreans have already developed 7 nm chips which are ready for production.
    10 nm chips are already available in many smartphones like Samsung galaxy s8.

    We need atleast 28 Nm Fabs but nobody is ready to share such critical technology with India and we can not get this technology without American approval.



    The initial investment is very large and unless you are doing mass production..... It is not economically suitable.

    7nm is only in laboratory condition. It is said to be the Moore limit. There was even 5nm technology. But that was different type of manufacturing. 10nm is the practical limit and that too is a technological challenge. 10nm jump from 14nm is bound to take some time. 7 nm will be much more challenging and is unlikely to be achieved in mass manufacturing scale

    so, don't waste others time when you are nothing more than a Loquacious person.
    Mr. Yechuri, your DP tells everything

    And who said that?

    Can you kindly stop writing big words without substance? Thank you. Tell Me what have you done? Or do you want to give excuses by citing problems everywhere? Do you ever bother giving solutions or just rant that nothing is ever possible in India but always possible everywhere else?

    Exactly. That is what happens in india and China like giants. You can make money by selling simple things to millions of people and by that money you can buy high tech industries out right.

    Just the way tata gobbled up Jaguar and Land Rover.

    The point is that reliance saw the market firming up , demand rising exponentially for next 3-4 decades and so it jumped into ship building .

    Same thing will repeat for different industries.

    Dude,
    my last project was multi function display at Samtel.
    and for my recent work, I do not have permission to share anything about it.

    so, Mr. Yechuri,
    I stick with my words, if you want to do something instead of argue than surely i can help u...

    that might be another good way ...

    by the way,In 2015 Cricket Semiconductor, a US based semiconductor company, has signed an MoU with Government of Madhya Pradesh to invest US$ 1 billion (approx 6000 Crore) to establish an analog semiconductor fab in the state. This was a significant boost to PM Modi's "Make in India" call

    Also, TATA Group is also trying to form a JV with South Korean Giant.

    OT here , but a relevant quote : " We missed the semiconductor revolution in the early 1950s. We had just gained independence. But with nanoscience and technology , we can certainly be on equal footing with the rest of the world" - Prof CNR Rao , 2006.

    Thank you for working for the nation. I can't tell much more ( I learnt myself without any aid, but still I will keep it classified) except that by 2030 AMCA will be ready. Modi, Doval are working overtime to ensure that most of defence technology is with India. We will have WW3 little later. Congress is not corrupt but evil and is controlled by ISI. The prophecy of Armageddon, judgement day and kalki are true. I can't say why or how in scientific terms (classified). Believe or disbelieve, It is upto you. If you believe, produce 3-4 children to ensure higher chances of survival. If congress wins in 2019 or 2024, expect India to be facing the worst nightmare.

    No, RDEL was a due to Modi's assurance. We will see a massive build up of defence soon. May be by 2025-30,the build up will begin. Just wait and watch

    Are you getting mad :crazy:. If you are addicted to any type of intoxication :daru: than stop it urgently and consult a good psychiatrist.
    Also don't watch too much HOLLYWOOD movies.

    You are totally out of your mind, huh :doh:

    See, jijad has to End one way or another. It will end one day. Think logically. As I said, I can't speak more. But, large and young population, indigenous technology and massive build up is mandatory to survive WW3.
    As I told, believe or not is upto you. Just think logically.

    I hope you won't risk a human life on your 10 nm fragile general purpose SOC chip(Snapdragon 835 on S8) ..? I bet you would always pick purpose build 40nm chip with built-in heat management for all critical systems. You don't need heat induced CPU clock throtlling when that piece of silicon is your guidance module on the SAM doing a Mach 5 turn with tango on its 12...

    These system are real time systems. They cannot sacrifice performance for packaging and battery life...When did 10nm wafers got rated for 10yrs of canesterizarion and then work perfectly when needed. We all know how often our phones die on us, like ever third/fourth year or like every other year if it's someones like me. The kind of forces these stuff go through the first few seconds after launch (continued the SAM example) its enough to crush the leads on the board, if that is built sturdy in the first place...

    PS: I am all for smart weapons and jam packed processing powres on those. But it will take a lot of years to get there.

    PPS: Absolutely not bad mouthing Snapdragon 835...Using 1+5 to write this...

    There is no human on a Uav /UCAVs.

    If our equipment like radars, camera, sensors and other electronics are lighter and occupying less space then all that area can be used for carrying more fuel and more weapons.
    That will provide better service ceiling , endurance and firepower to UCAVs.


    It is not about battery or heat.


    Can your old CPU handle all those data, sensor fusion and programs related to artificial intelligence without breaking down ??

    Why you don't use your old 40 nm CPU in one plus 1 ??

    That will give you 10 years of mobile life. :facepalm::facepalm:
