Karachi students design the country’s first microprocessor
Using the open source technologies in partnership with Google, 2 systems on-chip microprocessors consist of RISC-V, an open standard instruction set architect developed by the international organization based in Switzerland, which is a significant step towards Pakistan’s self-reliance in digital technology. ۔
This microprocessor is the result of research on semiconductor technologies in Pakistan’s first microelectronics research laboratory at the Usman Institute of Technology, an IT engineering institute in Pakistan, and undergraduate students under the supervision of PhD specialist Dr. Ali Ahmad Ansari. Designed. Designed in Pakistan, these microprocessors were designed under a Google-funded program and were selected from 40 open service processors designed in different countries around the world that will arrive in Pakistan in chip format by next month. Will be the first RISC-V microprocessor. This processor has been named Barak which consists of two parts one is called Genesis and the other is called Ghazi. These processors will be useful for solutions containing Internet of Things and through machine learning and artificial intelligence methods. Can be installed in electronics, vehicles and machines that make human life easier.
