The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras on Thursday said its researchers have successfully developed ‘MOUSHIK’, an indigenously-made microprocessor for the Internet of things (IoT) devices.
According to the institute, ‘MOUSHIK’ is a processor cum asystem on chip’ that can cater to the rapidly-growing IoT devices, an integral part of smart cities of a digital India.
It was conceptualised, designed and developed at the Pratap Subrahmanyam Centre for Digital Intelligence and Secure Hardware Architecture (PS-CDISHA) of the RISE Group, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Madras.
“There are three steps involved in the making of a microprocessor, namely design, fabrication and post-silicon boot-up,” Kamakoti Veezhinathan, Reconfigurable Intelligent Systems Engineering (RISE) Group, IIT Madras, said in a statement.
“All three processes for ‘MOUSHIK’ were undertaken in India, demonstrating an aAtmanirbhar’ ecosystem in digital design productisation,” Veezhinathan added.
The impact of the completely-indigenous development process is the showcasing of an Indian ...
