C-CDAC final stage of creating India’s first microprocessor

PUBLISH DATE 4th April 2019

PUNE: The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) is in the final stage of creating India’s first 64-bit quad core microprocessor to end the country’s dependence on imported microprocessors and assure better data security.
The process to indigenously build the system under the Microprocessor Development Programme took 18 months at a cost of Rs85 crore. Director general of CDAC Hemant Darbari said, “This will be very important for the defence and space sector as it will ensure better security due to fewer chances of interference by outside elements. We have already realized the processes in the microprocessor and found desired results. This will now go in production mode.”

CDAC will celebrate its Foundation Day on April 6. It will host a two-day technology conclave on April 4 and 5. “Exascale Computing, Microprocessor and Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Language Computing, Internet of Everything and Dependable and Secure Computing and Next Generation Applied Computing are considered CDAC’s major thrust areas,” said Darbari.

There are also preliminary talks on to develop India’s own Artificial Intelligence cloud. “The conference will also help private players understand CDAC’s technology and in collaborating with outside players in technology and knowledge exchange as well as sale of technology,” said Darbari.

CDAC will soon start a three-year project to simultaneously translate English into select Indian languages. Once successful they would also offer translation within Indian languages.

The centre is also working on building the country’s first quantum computer. The computer that is normally used is a digital computer that uses two values — 1 and 0. “However research is on to make India’s first quantum computer that can work in qubits, which means that they can take on value of 1, 0 or both simultaneously. This will make the computer exponentially fast,” said Darbari.
