Functional Safety Training for the Semiconductor Industry

Abstract Multi Coloured Landscape

Understand semiconductor functional safety requirements in the semiconductor industry with professional training courses from SGS.

The Indian semiconductor industry offers high-growth potential, with demand increasing from industries sourcing semiconductors for telecommunications and IT and the Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, as the semiconductor industry adapts to connected, autonomous, shared, electric (CASE) cars, some systems that were not covered by the Functional Safety Standard (ISO 26262) are now becoming covered by it. In addition, with the publication of the 2018 Functional Safety Standard (ISO 26262:2018 edition), trucks, buses and motorcycles will also need to comply with the requirements.

Growth of the Semi-Conductor Industry in India

According to the India Electronics & Semiconductor Association, the Indian Electronic System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) market will grow from US$ 76 billion in 2013 to US$ 400 billion by 2022.

End-use industries, such as mobile devices, telecommunication equipment, information technology (IT), office automation (OA), industrial machinery and automobiles have applications for computing, resulting in a growing demand for semiconductors. In addition, with the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) picking up momentum, the next generation of interconnected devices is further increasing the demand for intelligent computing, creating sustainable demand for semiconductors.

As a result, the Indian semiconductor industry is experiencing high growth. According to the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), nearly 2,000 chips are being designed every year in India and more than 20,000 engineers are working on various aspects of chip design and verification. The government has a strong focus in developing the ESDM ecosystem. As a result, several subsidies and other incentives are available for those wishing to set up electronics manufacturing units in India.
