About CiPD

A primary goal of the centre is to bring together expertise from many research and expertise silos and foster innovation by creating indigenized product platforms that can help the industry to bring solutions to the market faster and at a significantly lower design cost and risk.

India designed and manufactured leading-edge electronics until the mid-1990s. However, today, electronics manufacturing is largely limited to assembling, soldering, and packaging products - which is a very low-value addition. Design capability is not developed and is almost dying out, and due to that, there is much more dependency on electronics imports (Completely Knock Down (CKD) and Semi Knock Down (SKD) imports). This has a significant impact on the Economy and Governance.
