IIT-Bhubaneswar develops new chips – The New Indian Express
BHUBANEWAR: In a technological breakthrough, IIT-Bhubaneswar has developed two semiconductor chips for advanced applications.
While a locally developed integrated circuit (IC) will help secure and energy efficient biomedical data transmission over the medical Internet of things (IoMT), another low power, short range RF front end IC will save time. energy in Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
A team of researchers led by Dr MS Manikandan and Dr Srinivas Boppu designed and developed the ultra-low power complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) data conversion integrated circuit. “The integrated circuit will also speed up the transmission of biomedical data by consuming less power in portable body networks to advanced computing or cloud computing devices,” Manikandan said.
The integrated circuit was developed under the Special Workforce Development Program for System Chip Design (SMDP-C2SD) of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and was manufactured at the semiconductor laboratory (SCL), Mohali.
Another team led by Dr Vijaya Sankara Rao Pasupureddi designed and developed the low-power, short-range front-end RF integrated circuit with intensive digital subsampling.
The chip includes several design innovations. It is made in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company and is expected to be received soon.
IIT Director Prof. RV Raja Kumar said: “These semiconductor chips were developed after hard work over the past four years.
