IIT Kanpur & Silizium Circuits Jointly Bag Rs 5 Cr Project From MeitY’s

The SoC will drive innovations in the IoT and indoor applications and its revenues are forecast to be around $ 1.3 trillion in 2030

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur jointly with Silizium Circuits Private Limited has bagged a Rs 5 crore Grant-in-Aid project from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY)’s Chips to Startup (C2S) program for its project, "Radio-frequency (RF) Transceiver SoC (System on Chip) with integrated RISC V core for Sub-GHz Applications".  

Prof Abhay Karandikar, Director IIT Kanpur said, “IIT Kanpur has always been fostering innovation, promoting entrepreneurship, and driving technology commercialisation and the Chips to Startup (C2S) project is part of this ongoing drive. The project, that aims at the formulation of an SoC supporting all the prominent standards in sub GHz, will drive innovations in the IoT and indoor applications.” 

The project duration is 3 years and IIT Kanpur as the nodal agency will be responsible for the developing of significant mixed signal IPs and Silizium Circuits will design the RF Front End and System-On-Chip (SoC) along with commercialisation.  

Prof Imon Mondal, Prof Chithra and Prof R. S. Ashwin Kumar from IIT Kanpur and Dr Arun Ashok and Rijin John from  Silizium Circuits are the investigators of this project. The project is backed by the end-user ATWIC R&D which is an innovative establishment focused on developing electronics systems and subsystems.
