Testing and Validation Engineer

Semiconductors are the unsung heroes of the technology industry, powering everything from toys to cellphones to vehicles and thermostats from behind the scenes. They have allowed breakthrough technologies in recent years, like artificial intelligence and machine learning, that have changed the way we live and work. To take the digital revolution to the next level, more powerful chips with more processing power and memory capacity will be required.

With supply chains being disrupted by the COVID-19 problem and geopolitical tensions rising, semiconductor businesses are becoming increasingly interested in developing end-to-end design and manufacturing skills for cutting-edge technologies. Many governments are interested in this as well, and are working to help their local semiconductor markets. However, new fabs and substantial R&D projects, both of which are required to produce cutting-edge technology in large quantities, cost billions of dollars. A blunder in these areas, inadequate cost control, or lower-than-expected demand can significantly reduce, if not completely eliminate, a company’s return on investment. Research, supply chain, talent, and intellectual-property (IP) protection, as well as the capacity to navigate government rules, are all required for cutting-edge chip design and manufacture. While some semiconductor companies specialise at certain activities, few have top capabilities across the board. Here are the job opportunities in the semiconductor industry in the production line of active components.

Die Bonding Operator

At the very least, you should have completed the 12th standard. Die Bonding Operator Certification (programme aligned to ELE/Q1701 from the Electronics Sector Skills Development Council)

Salary- Die Bonding Operator

Experience-wise

Salary 

For freshers 

INR 7,000 to INR 9,000 per month 

For candidates with experience 

INR 10,000 to INR 15,000 per month

India's EDSM Market

Although India relies heavily on imports of a variety of electronics products, equipment, and components from other nations, the country’s Electronic System Design & Manufacturing (ESDM) business has changed dramatically in recent years.

Prospects for the Future

While India’s footprint as a manufacturing base for high-end components is still developing, the country has already established a presence in component R&D, with global electronics giants such as Texas Instruments, Intel, and others establishing research labs in the country.

HR Requirements in Electronics Components as Projected

According to the IMaCS Analysis, the need for human resources in the Electronics Components industry is expected to rise from 1,49,000 in 2008 to 8,34,000 in 2022, a 6.85 million increase.

Active Components is one of the top 14 sub-sectors with a strong employment potential, according to India’s Electronics Sector Skills Council.

Encapsulation Operator

A minimum of a 12th-grade pass is required. Encapsulation Operator certified training (course aligned to ELE/Q1703 published by the Electronics Sector Skills Council of India)

Salary- Encapsulation Operator

Experience-wise

Salary 

For freshers 

INR 6,000 to INR 7,000 per month 

For candidates with 2-3 years experience 

INR 10,000 to INR 12,000 per month

India's Electronic Components market

The Indian semiconductor design sector has grown significantly over the years and is now working on cutting-edge technologies. This industry will continue to grow as technical skill grows in tandem with a strict IP protection environment and a trend toward content localization.

In India, around 120 companies specialise in semiconductor design for global markets. Since 2009, this industry has grown at a rate of 17.3 percent per year, accounting for 5.1 percent of the worldwide pie. The Indian semiconductor design market is estimated to reach US$ 14.5 billion in 2015, based on its current growth trajectory.

 

The Electronic Components sector is predicted to grow by 19 percent through 2022, outpacing India’s GDP, according to the “Human Resource and Skill Requirements in the Electronics & IT Hardware Sector (2022)” report. Active Components is one of the top 14 sub-sectors with a strong employment potential, according to India’s Electronics Sector Skills Council. This will have a good effect on the job roles in this industry.

According to the IMaCS Analysis, the need for human resources in the Electronic Components industry is expected to increase from 1,79,000 in 2012 to 8,34,000 in 2022, a 6,55,000 increase.

An Encapsulation Operator is one of the job roles that will benefit greatly from all of these trends.
