The other consortium will have ST Microelectronics partnering up with Hindustan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation and Silterra of Malaysia. They will be investing around Rs 25,250 crore for the FAB facility of 40,000 wafer starts per month of 300 mm size, using advanced CMOS technology. Technology nodes proposed here include 90, 65 and 45 nm nodes in Phase I and 45, 28 and 22 nm nodes in Phase II. The second FAB unit will be set up in Gujarat.
