Three-year Memorandum of Understanding Supports India’s Domestic Technology Growth Strategy While Expanding Renesas’ Presence in the Country’s Chip Sector

Renesas Electronics Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, and the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH) have signed a three-year memorandum of understanding (MOU) for research and collaboration in the field of VLSI and embedded semiconductor systems. The engagement with IITH professors and staff will focus on R&D and academic interactions with a goal to drive innovation in India’s semiconductor industry and advance the nation’s “Make in India” strategy.

The signing ceremony of the agreement was held on June 3, 2024 at the IITH in Telangana state between Malini Narayanamoorthi, Country Head of India and Senior Director of Engineering, Analog & Connectivity Product Group, Renesas, and Prof. B.S. Murty, Director, IITH.

The MOU will help the IITH foster talent development in support of India’s ambition to build a self-reliant semiconductor industry while enabling Renesas to add talented employees in India through closer collaboration with the country’s educational institutions to capture huge market opportunities.

Under the MOU, Renesas this year will begin supporting university course curriculum development, hands-on learning using Renesas development boards and various outreach programs designed to advance lab work and proof-of-concept projects. IITH engineering students will be eligible to apply for six-month Renesas internships and pursue full-time employment with the company.

India holds significant importance within our business operations, and we appreciate its dynamic innovation environment and strong potential for growth,” said Julie Pope, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Renesas. “We are delighted to partner with IITH in its goal to be the cradle for semiconductor innovation in India. We aim to strengthen India‘s semiconductor product ecosystem, and support the “Make in India” objective of providing increasing semiconductor content for India and the world.”

“Recognizing the importance of India at the forefront of the semiconductor industry in influencing the future, our collaboration with Renesas will provide a chance for our students to gain exposure and learn directly from Renesas experts about constructing products with cutting-edge technologies. IITH is pioneering several initiatives to foster talent development in Electronic System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) sector across India. This synergistic collaboration is a booster to that effort. This is also a pathway for R&D collaboration as IITH boasts several expert faculty spanning across several departments who can co develop next generation electronic products with Renesas,” said Prof. B.S. Murty, Director, IITH. “The opportunity for employment at a leading global company is a tremendous additional benefit.”
