Fostering the Semiconductor and Digital TV Industry
The Program to Support the Technological Development of the Semiconductor Industry (PADIS) and the Program to Support the Technological Development of Digital TV Equipment Industry (PATVD) are a set of federal tax incentives established with the goal of contributing to the attraction of investments and the expansion of existing ones in the fields of semiconductors and information displays, including photovoltaic cells and modules/panels and strategic inputs for the production chain such as silicon ingots and purified silicon.
In order to benefit from the programs, companies must make minimum investments in R&D&I activities every year.
