The JV will be 92.3% owned by CG, with Renesas and Stars Microelectronics each holding equity capital of approximately 6.8% and 0.9%, respectively. The JV plans to invest 7,600 crore over a five-year period, which will be financed through a mix of subsidies, equity, and potential bank borrowings as required, it added.

“CG’s entry into semiconductor manufacturing marks a strategic diversification for us," said S Velleyan, managing director of the company.

The JV will set up a manufacturing facility in Sanand, Gujarat, with a capacity that will ramp up to 15 million units per day. It will manufacture a wide range of products – ranging from legacy packages such as QFN and QFP to advanced packages such as FC BGA, and FC CSP. 

The venture will cater to industries such as automotive, consumer, industrial and 5G.
