About Microprocessor Challenge :
Microprocessor Challenge is organized Under Microprocessor Development Programme spearheaded by Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) at C-DAC, IIT Madras and IIT Bombay, not only the family of industry-grade Microprocessors has been designed from the scratch but also the compute ecosystem around them has been evolved as a step towards meeting India's future requirements.
By the new Initiative of Aatma Nibhar Bharat Abhiyan, there is a growing need for Swadeshi Compute hardware, which will be part of every smart device deployed in different fields, including electronics for utilities such as surveillance, transportation, surveillance of the state of the environment, to basic appliances like smart fans / locks / washing machines. Furthermore, with the increasing penetration of smart electronics in strategic areas such as space, defense and nuclear power, the need for Swadeshi Compute hardware is critical. It is not only the cost or the embargo that motivates this need, but also the dependence on external suppliers, long term sustainability, rapid improvements to meet ever increasing demands, and above all safety which motivates AatmaNirbharta in the material realm, as the only option.
