In order to develop viable technologies for use in electronics, the Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology (CMET) has been re-established by the Indian Ministry of Information Technology.

CMET's three R&D labs in Hyderabad, Pune and Thrissur are working on establishing pilot technologies for a range of electronic materials prior to commercialization. CMET will set up characterization facilities, take up applied research in developing viable technologies and establish a database on electronic materials.

For the next few years, the labs will focus on ultra-high pure materials, electronic packaging, optoelectronic materials, sensors and actuators. Nanotechnology will be used in these programs to develop materials, devices and components.
