Tags: Science and Technology

Researchers at IISc Bengaluru have recently developed a prototype of an analog chipset named "Aryabhata-1".

  • Important facts

  • The team has created a design framework for developing the next generation of analog computing chipsets.

  • These chipsets can work fast. It will use less power than the digital processors used in various electronic gadgets.

  • It has been designed by Prateek Kumar, a PhD student at IISc.

  • Aryabhata-1

  • Aryabhata-1 stands for "Analog Reconfigurable Technology and Bias-scalable Hardware for AI Tasks".

  • These chipsets could be beneficial for applications based on artificial intelligence (AI) such as object or speech recognition apps, including Alexa.

  • It is able to be configured with multiple machine learning architectures such that its ability to perform robustly over different temperature ranges enables it to work with digital CPUs.

  • About Indian Institute of Science (IISc) 

  • IISc was established in the year 1909 at Bangalore, Karnataka State with the active support of Jamsetji Tata.

  • Hence it is also known as 'Tata Institute'.

  • It is a public research university for higher education and research in science, engineering, design and management.

  • IISc was granted deemed university status in 1958 and Institute of Eminence in 2018.
