IIT-M and NIELIT offer 10-day workshop for Engineering students, researchers, and start-ups


Indian Institute of Technology Madras Pravartak Technologies Foundation and National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology (NIELIT), Calicut, are jointly offering a ten-day online, instructor-led short-term online workshop on Embedded Application Development using SHAKTI Microprocessors, the first indigenously-developed microprocessor in the country. Interested Candidates can register, and obtain further information from the following link - https://www.nielit.gov.in/content/online-workshop-embedded-application-development-swadeshi-processors-shakti-risc-v

NIELIT Calicut has developed India’s First Swadeshi Processor-based Remote Embedded System Design Lab, which has already trained about 2,000 participants across the globe. The configured Swadeshi processor platform enables embedded hardware design remotely. As of now, the need of Swadeshi Computer Hardware is crucial in many areas like Smart Device deployed in different domains, including electronics for public utility services such as surveillance, transportation, environmental condition monitoring, to commodity appliances like smart fans/ locks/ washing machines. The facility was initially used for training India’s young aspirants those who like electronics hardware/system design domain by MeitY’s Instruction Enhancement Program (IEP).


This programme will provide thorough knowledge about the Shakti Processors, their programming, and interfacing for the internet of things (IoT) applications. Swadeshi processors are Made-in-India processors which, in the future, have the potential to be used across the world for IoT applications. This course will enhance skills in using these Swadeshi processors developed by IIT Madras for IoT applications. The course will also help the participants to get exposure in industry-standard methodologies from the makers of the processors. A virtual lab will be made available for participants who can get hands-on experience on the Made-in-India microprocessors.
