SITAR society was formed with an objective of design and development of strategic and security systems required mainly for DRDO. The Society has two production units - Semiconductor Technology & Applied Research Centre (STARC) at Bangaloreand Gallium Arsenide Enabling Technology Centre (GAETEC) at Hyderabad.
STARC is a 1 micron digital CMOS, DLM and MIL qualified fab with capability to process 150 mm wafers. MEMS Fabrication Facility also was established in 2012 and MEMS Packaging & Testing Facility have been added in 2017.
GAETEC has absorbed process technology developed at SSPL and has been producing MMICs with 0.7-micron gate length MESFETs (G7a) and 0.5micron gate length MESFETs (G5A) in GaAs Fab.
