About AICTE-Hardware Challenge Using Microprocessors

It is pleased to inform you that, inspired by the government’s #Atma Nirbhar Bharat Vision, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has announced the Hardware Challenge under Microprocessor Development Programme, in consultation with the participating institutions i.e. C-DAC, IIT Madras & IIT Bombay. This is as a step towards achieving the self-reliance in the hardware domain with the following broad contours:

 

1. Hardware Challenge using Microprocessors has been announced on 15th August 2020 for an overall duration of 10 months with a total award amount of Rs. 4.30 Crore earmarked in different phases, to inculcate the culture of taking up the complex designs in the country around indigenous processors of C-DAC (VEGA processors) & IIT Madras (SHAKTI processors).

 

2. Participation in proposed Hardware Challenge: Will be sought not only from engineering college students (B.Tech/ M.Tech/ PhD level) but also from the Start-ups working in this area, in line with the objective of achieving a horizontal spread of this technology. All efforts will be made to disseminate the information & reach out to masses and involve the participation of all stakeholders in this Challenge.

 

3. Roadmap for engaging stakeholders & information dissemination: Respective websites of C-DAC ( http://vegaprocessors.in/hwchallenge.html ) & IIT Madras ( https://shakti.org.in/gc2020-shakti.html ) have already been developed for providing information on Embedded / Controller class of SHAKTI/ VEGA processors & associated Hw/ Sw ported on Xilinx FPGA Boards.
