Steve Long, Corporate VP of Intel, Says Semiconductor Opportunities Moving to India

The world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer, Intel Corp, is shifting operations from traditional hubs, including Taiwan and China. Steve Long, corporate vice president of Intel, says that the company’s semiconductor opportunities are now moving to India due to its geographic benefits and government policy support like the Make in India campaign.

Until now, Taiwan has been a monopolistic country dominating semiconductor manufacturing due to its hold on producing technologically advanced nodes. The Indian government has ventured into a mission to make India a strategic chip manufacturer by developing and manufacturing these nodes. 

Long said, “Governance initiatives like Make-in-India are driving design opportunities from historical regions in Taiwan, or China or other parts of Southeast Asia to India. We see a big opportunity here.”

Other than policy support, Intel collaborates with several Indian telecommunication companies to enhance 4G and 5G technologies to leverage V-RAN (virtualized radio access network) and O-RAN (open RAN) services. 

Long expressed his excitement to work with Indian carriers because of their extensive design capabilities that companies like Nokia or Ericsson overlooked. He said that with Intel’s help, the newer companies could grow and export their abilities.
