The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur with Silizium Circuits Private Limited has successfully managed to grab a ₹5 crore grant from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY)’s Chips to Startup (C2S) programme. The grant will be utilised for the ground-breaking project, ‘Radio-frequency (RF) Transceiver SoC (System on Chip) with integrated RISC V core for Sub-GHz Applications’.
Together, IIT Kanpur and Silizium Circuits consider this project to be a pivotal point in India’s semiconductor ambitions. It aims at the formulation of an SoC supporting all the prominent standards in sub GHz, that will drive innovations in the IoT and indoor applications sector. The development has a tremendous international market size which will help put India in a stronger position with respect to complex SoC research and development.
The project duration is 3 years and IIT Kanpur, as the nodal agency, will be responsible for developing mixed signal IPs and Silizium Circuits will design the RF Front End and System-On-Chip (SoC) along with commercialization. Knock Sense
