IIT-Bhubaneswar develops ultra-low power integrated circuit (IC)
Researchers at IIT-Bhubaneswar have developed an ultra-low power integrated circuit (IC) for energy-efficient biomedical data transmission, according to a statement. The locally developed ultra-low-power Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) data conversion integrated circuit will aid in secure and energy-efficient biomedical data transmission through the Medical Internet of Things (IoMT) and portable body networks ( WBAN) for cloud computing devices, he added.
The first batch of the integrated circuit was manufactured by researchers at the Semi-Conductor Laboratory (SCL) in Mohali. The integrated circuit was developed with the support of the Special Workforce Development Program for Chips in System Design (SMDP-C2SD) of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, according to the communicated.
Another team of researchers from the first institute has developed a short-range, low-power RF (radio frequency) front-end integrated circuit with digital subsampling, which will help in IoT (Internet of Things) applications. It includes several design innovations. The chip is being manufactured at TSMC in Taiwan and is expected to be received soon, the researchers said.
“These semiconductor chip developments are the result of four years of unremitting efforts by the institute,” said RV Raja Kumar, director of IIT-Bhubaneswar. The developments are part of IIT-Bhubaneswar’s vision to create a sustainable chip design and manufacturing echo system at the institute and its hinterland, he added. The innovations will help put Bhubaneswar on the technology map, the statement said.
