L&T, late last year, had announced that it was investing Rs 830 crore to set up a semiconductor design company

Sanjay Gupta has joined Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T) semiconductor arm business in India. Sources close to the matter told Electronics For You that he joined L&T Semiconductor Technologies on 1st April 2024 as Chief Development Officer and as head of Global Systems Software & Hardware Engineering teams.

L&T, in a strategic move late last year, announced a substantial investment of Rs 830 crore to establish a semiconductor design company. Notably, the company highlighted that the new team’s focus will extend beyond borders, encompassing global markets, including India, thereby underlining the vast potential of the semiconductor industry.

In the beginning stages, L&T will concentrate on designing chips for the automotive and industrial sectors.

“The challenge for chip designers working on chips specifically designed for India, especially the defence sector, is to design chips for equipment that can operate in the 55-degree to minus 40-degree range. This combination isn’t available anywhere in the world. The business is being incubated and will start showing up in the market in another three years,” JD Patil, Advisor to chairman and managing director, L&T, had said recently while speaking at the Maharashtra MSME Defence Expo.

For Gupta, semiconductors have been the favourite thing to do. Apart from his last stint with Minda Corporation as President and CEO of Spark Minda, he has worked with semiconductors his whole life.

Starting his professional innings in 1996 with Duet Technologies as a design engineer, he joined Motorola as Design Tech lead in 1998. He then was Design Manager at Freescale Semiconductor from June 2003 to August 2005 before being promoted to the rank of Senior Director of Engineering. Before joining Minda Corporation in November 2022, he was associated with NXP Semiconductors as the company’s VP and country manager for almost seven years.
