Title: The Future of (Micro) Electronics and Possible Roles India Can Play

Speaker: Prof Mayank Shrivastava, Associate Professor DESE, IISC, India

Date: Thursday, 26 August 2021 15:30 -17:00

 Abstract: Like petroleum, electronics has become a key driver for major economies in the world. For instance, at the commercial front, China has (recently) become the biggest exporter of manufactured electronics/semiconductor products in the world. Taiwan’s major business is in manufacturing of  Semiconductors, which is one of the key drivers of their economy. Similarly, India’s electronics import is at the verge of exceeding its oil import. At the strategic front, often the technological capabilities are driven by electronic / semiconductor technologies available in-house.

In this context, India has attempted several times, in last two decades, to catch the bus in terms of setting-up a silicon Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) foundry, which can cater to India’s commercial, strategic and scientific needs. For all practical reasons, if India attempts to catch-up the west in technologies having very high obsolescence rate, India may not be able to take a lead in future. In this context, the question is, “How India can take a lead – at the international front – in Semiconductor R&D and manufacturing, leading to commercial and strategic independence”? Speaker of this talk believes that for India to become a leader, India must jump the technology roadmap and rather than only catching-up on the established technologies, should invest pro-actively on disruptive technologies projected for future.

This talk will be pitched with the vision and belief highlighted above, while discussing 5 key disruptive technologies, which can be game changers as far as future of electronics and electronics manufacturing in India is concerned.

Speaker Profile:  Prof Mayank Shrivastava is a faculty member at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and also co-founder of a company named AGNIT Semiconductors Pvt. Ltd. He received his PhD degree from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (2010). For his PhD work he received excellence in research award for his PhD thesis and industrial impact award from IIT Bombay in 2010. He is among the first recipients of Indian section of American TR35 award (2010) and the first Indian to receive IEEE EDS Early Career Award (2015). Besides, he is an IEEE Senior Member and has received several other national awards and honors of high repute, like National Academy of Sciences, India, (NASI) Young Scientist Platinum Jubilee Award – 2018; Indian National Academy of Science (INSA) Young Scientist Award – 2018; Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) Innovator Entrepreneur Award 2018 (Special commendation); Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE) Young Engineer Award – 2017; INAE Young Associate (since 2017); Indian Academy of Sciences (IASc), Young Associate, 2018 – 2023; Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY), Young Faculty Fellowship.  He has received best paper awards from several international conferences like Intel Corporation Asia academic forum; VLSI design conference and EOSESD Symposium.
