The day's event focussed on separate sessions on Aerospace & Defence, Electronics and Bio-Engineering.
The Electronics session featured a Panel Discussion (PD) on "The Right Electronics Manufacturing Strategy for India" in which our Chairman Mr. Ar Rm Arun addressed the symposium. Mr. Arun shared our experience of successfully running a world class Semiconductor Packaging facility in India and Natronix's expansion plans for venturing into Advanced Semiconductor Packaging and Package IP.
The PD also featured the challenges faced and steps taken to address this. Mr. Arun provided suggestions on how IIT-B can make a significant difference working with Semiconductor Companies like Natronix-SPEL, especially in Technology Development for Electronics Manufacturing.
