About SCL

Semiconductor Laboratory (SCL), an autonomous body under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India, is the only Integrated Device Manufacturing Facility in the country providing end-to-end solutions for Development of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), Opto-electronics devices, and Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) Devices encompassing Design, Fabrication, Assembly, Packaging, Testing, and Reliability Assurance.

Formerly known as Semiconductor Complex Limited, a Government of India enterprise, it was converted into Semi-Conductor Laboratory under the Department of Space, Government of India, w.e.f. September 1, 2006. Administrative control of SCL, Society was transferred from the Department of Space (DoS) to the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) vide notification No. 1/21/1/2022-Cab dated February 07, 2022.

SCL has an 8" wafer fab line qualified to the JEDEC-JP001A standard with a 180 nm CMOS technology node. SCL also has a 6" fab line for MEMS development and is expanding it to include a compound semiconductor fabrication facility. Process capability at SCL enables a 1.8V, 1.8/3.3V, or 1.8V/5V power-supply solution with 4-6 Al-metal layers and analog modules. The VLSI design domain in SCL spreads over analog, digital, mixed-signal, memory, RF-CMOS, and optoelectronic in the form of silicon-proven and space-qualified ASICS, ASSPs, SoCs, SCL excels in developing ceramic packages and meets the demanding test requirements at the wafer and package level, along with test plan development for high-pin-count integrated circuits, RF, and MEMS devices. At SCL, quality and reliability assurance adhere to global performance specifications such as MIL-PRF-38535, JEDEC-JP001A, and MIL-STD-883. SCL possesses capabilities in power, water, and air management, bulk, and specialty gas distribution systems. The quality parameters of Ultra Pure Water (UPW) and bulk gases produced at SCL are at par with international standards. SCL brings decades of experience to provide customers with unparalleled microelectronics solutions in India. SCL is also engaged in the fabrication of Hi-Rel boards, Radio systems, and the indigenization of electronic subsystems.
