The Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M) on Monday said that it was partnering with diversified French conglomerate Thales to design a Shakti RISC-V processor compatible with safety critical standards. Shakti is India’s first indigenously-built chip.
In a statement issued here, the IIT-M said with this tie up, a fault-tolerant Shakti framework would be developed and will undergo evaluation by the world’s top experts in safety critical standards.
Researchers at IIT-M recently designed, fabricated and booted up India’s first indigenously-developed RISC-V microprocessor – Shakti.
The Shakti family of processors are targeted for mobile computing devices, embedded low power wireless systems and networking systems, besides reducing reliance on imported microprocessors in communications and defense sectors, the statement said.
