Apart from providing production and training support, the technology center will also support MSMEs in overcoming bottlenecks and inefficiencies that would support in improving their competitiveness and presence in the market. The technology center will also provide handholding support to MSMEs in areas of product and process development, operations improvement, streamlining and standardization of processes through adoption of international norms, new technologies and capacity enhancement. The Bengaluru TC would have a dedicated professional wing to assist MSMEs by providing consultancy services in the field of:
- Market and Technology analytics report in terms of market and technology trends, business potential and information relevant for new technology adoption and new product segments.
- Services for BIS/ BEE/ UL / VDE / CE certification: Most of the consumer electronics product need BIS and BEE before launch of the product in India and VDE/ UL / CE approvals/ certification for exports of electronics products / components.
- Support to MSME for getting semiconductor components for prototyping and to increase their speed from T1 to T final prototype of product. TC can procure semiconductors from global leaders like TI, Renesasa, Infineon, Toshiba, Samsung, MTK, M Star, Hynix etc. and sell the same to MSMEs for getting the prototype assembled with reduced timelines.
- E Waste management service: Provisioning of this service would require an investment of approx. 100 lakh and regulatory licenses and clearances. This should be planned in phase 2, after operationalization of other services.
