Tata group is planning to invest Rs 200 crore for a semiconductor testing and packing unit at Narasapura in Kolar district, which is around 65 km from Bengaluru.
With Wistron’s iPhone manufacturing unit in Kolar being taken over by Tata group, it is likely to set up an Assembly, Testing, Marking and Packaging (ATMP) plant in Kolar.
“They’ll build an ATMP unit in Kolar, which will be a smaller facility,” Gunjan Krishna, Commissioner for Industrial Development and Director of Industries and Commerce, told Moneycontrol.
According to a statement from the Karnataka industries minister’s office on September 16, Tata Semiconductor Assembly and Test Private Limited will invest Rs 200 crore in Kolar and create 155 jobs.
ATMP plays a major role in the semiconductor industry’s ecosystem. Following the manufacturing of wafers at wafer fabs/foundries, ATMP facilities process wafers into individual chips, package them, and conduct testing to prepare them for use in electronic devices.
