The company has established an advanced high reliability (HiRel) and testing laboratory in Mohali, complementing its existing NABL Accredited facility in Delhi. The HiRel laboratory stands as a pivotal asset, ensuring the qualification of CDIL’s devices for stringent sectors, including the automotive industry, defense, and aerospace.

As a global semiconductor and electronics service provider, CDIL serves a diverse customer base spanning consumer, industrial, defense, aerospace, and automotive industries. The latest expansion underscores the company’s commitment to meeting the burgeoning needs of these critical sectors and advancing its position in the global market.
