NIT Raipur Partners with Bengaluru Company

The National institution of Technology Raipur has inked a memorandum of understanding with a Bengaluru-based company to establish an advanced chip research and development center on its campus in Chhattisgarh’s capital, an institution official said on Sunday.

The POSIT system-based general purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) advanced chip research and development center will be known as ViBram Silicon Hub, and Dr Sonal Yadav, an assistant professor at NIT Raipur, will lead it, according to the institute’s public relations officer.

The POSIT number system is an alternative to the Floating Point number system that promises to provide greater performance and accuracy for high-performance applications, particularly those requiring considerable mathematical computations, according to the official.

GPGPU advanced chips are used in smartphones, laptops, desktops, servers, and many other digital devices. These chips are also used in tsunami detection and satellite launch applications, he said.

The agreement was inked between NIT Raipur Director Dr N V Ramana Rao and Dr Vijay Holimath, chief executive officer of VividSparks from Bengaluru, on March 20, the official said.

He said that GPGPUs are responsible for computing heavy mathematical operations for gaming, video processing, Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning, High Performance Computing and many other applications.

According to Dr Yadav and Dr Holimath, the initiative will not only address India’s computational needs but also allow the centre to export its research works and products to other countries, besides creating job opportunities.
