    We have no semiconductor plants because we didn't bother about it (production is not zero, we make it at small scale for scientific experiments, sometimes for satellites). We are now going to set up two plants in Prantji of Gujarat.

    Over that, India also has developed 28 nm chips long back in 2011.:biggrin2:

    SoCtronics tapeout first 28nm design from India

    Sometimes @Martian gets ignorant but honestly, his threads were informative indeed except few errors.:D Without wasting time, let's start it.
    @HariPrasad-1 @indiatester @Chinmoy @AnantS @ezsasa
    I'm quoting the interested members here cuz they'll surely get notification by quoting if not by taggin.:p

    And to everyone, thread is for discussing critical techs like semiconductor chips, lead batteries and processors (for Indian Super computers) etc.. No need to shove up washing machine like things here.:)

    Waiting for ISRO to come out with reports on Vikram processor.
    What's the advancement we achieved in ANUPAMA?

    I wonder what type of chips are made and for what application...?

    What you will achieve when you make a 2 Petaflops supercomputer when previous one was just 220 terflops? Tell me.:biggrin2:

    In current labs, for satellites, launch vehicles and sometimes supercomputers.

    I mean there are different chips with different names...i can't figure out what is used for what...
    And we need FPGA's (Field Programmable gate array) F-35 uses these fpga's in huge numbers....

    Seeing where current generation of super computers are going and what is our need, 2 PF is not something we should be aiming for. We should aim for around 10PF in another 5 year time.

    With planned 2 PF, it would be mostly used for space research and tech. Our norm should be of atleast having 500 TF facility in leading educational and industrial complexes for relative R&D. What you say? :biggrin2:

    500 Tera flops that's huge for educational institutes..they can't maintain it

    Our current aim should be to strengthen domestic electronic capability with in house semi conductors. Then we could bridge the gap in between civilian and defence tech efficiently.
    Leap frogging directly to defence field without a sound civilian field would not be in the best for the nation. We have already seen that in many other fields.

    Many of the IITs are currently operating 250 TF and they could easily accomodate double of it. Even NITs are getting Param series now. So we should up the ante in these premiere institutes and industries.

    For rest cluster computing should be promoted.

    I beg differ with you..most of defense chips are different and cannot be used for civilian purpose...so as a country India we need defense first rather than civilian...Many companies will sell electronics for civilian purpose but not for defense purpose..so we things for defense first

    Not from PrantJi but I found an interesting separate project.
    India's first analog semiconductor fab in Madhya Pradesh

    Though, we use indigenous one already in space sector.

    fastest super computer is in china with 93 petaflops..They built it with cost of 273 million only and consumes 15MW...

    Now there you said it in last line.
    Let me cite one simple example. IAF is currently mulling to provide individual smartphones to each of their personals which would work solely inside the IAF range. Now they would have to sure look for some foreign OEM to deliver the hardware. Wouldn't it be more convenient if we could deliver home built phones to them? This is the first step of moving towards defence sector.
    While building a particular smart phone, you have to develop ASIC for better data processing and functioning. Building a mission computer for any fighter jet with 100s of ASIC is much more complex then building some basic ASIC for a basic smart phone. So without developing a simple ASIC for smart phone, how come you could develop such complex ASIC for flight control or weapon firing of a fighter?
    Developing relative technology in simpler civilian form would smooth out your way towards attaining mastery in complex defence field.

    There too we have first developed simple civilian solution like telecommunication before moving to complex navigational and Radar imaging.

    By 10 times gap.
    1 Petaflop = 10³ Teraflops
