Tata Group's Tata Electronics has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Synopsys, a prominent provider of silicon-to-systems design solutions.

The partnership aims to accelerate the ramp of customer products in India’s first fab being built by Tata Electronics in Dholera, Gujarat.

The partnership focuses on several key areas, including advanced factory automation, yield data analytics, technology computer-aided design (TCAD) flow setup, process design kits (PDKs), design enablement, intellectual property (IP) development, and design technology co-optimization (DTCO) methodologies.

Aiming to become leader in electronics manufacturing


Tata Electronics aims to become a world leader in electronics manufacturing by offering integrated solutions across the electronics manufacturing value chain.

Randhir Thakur, Managing Director & CEO of Tata Electronics, emphasized the importance of Synopsys in their journey, stating, “We view Synopsys as a key partner and accelerator in our journey by virtue of the expertise they bring in semiconductor design and services.”

Synopsys's expertise will be utilized in Tata’s upcoming semiconductor facilities in Gujarat and Assam, facilitating accurate technology transfer and IP development, the release notes.

Planning to invest Rs 91,000 crore

Tata Electronics plans to invest Rs 91,000 crore (~US$11 billion) in building India’s first fab in Dholera, Gujarat.

Additionally, the company will invest another Rs 27,000 crore in a greenfield facility in Jagiroad, Assam, for the assembly and testing of semiconductor chips. These facilities aim to produce semiconductor chips for applications in automotive, mobile devices, artificial intelligence (AI), and other key segments, serving customers globally.

Enhancing the semiconductor ecosystem

The collaboration is expected to enhance the semiconductor ecosystem in India by growing partnerships across process and design technology and equipment suppliers.

“As construction of the facilities progresses, it is critical to grow partnerships across the entire semiconductor ecosystem spanning process and design technology, and equipment suppliers," the company said. This holistic approach is essential to achieve Tata’s targets of bringing semiconductor manufacturing to India.

Role of Synopsys in this partnership

Synopsys brings nearly 30 years of experience in silicon-to-systems design solutions and has been investing in workforce development in India.

Sassine Ghazi, President & CEO of Synopsys, expressed support for Tata Electronics' vision, saying, “We applaud and support Tata Electronics’ vision to develop semiconductor manufacturing capacity in India, advancing supply chain resiliency for the global semiconductor industry.” Synopsys' expertise will play a crucial role in the development and operation of Tata Electronics’ semiconductor facilities.
