DRDO Readying System On Chip For Avionics | AVIATION WEEK
By Anantha Krishnan M.
India is set to launch a system on chip (SoC) for avionics applications. It is a single chip solution for the existing printed circuit board-based onboard computer.
A select group of scientists are currently engaged in the design and development of the SoC at the Real-Time Embedded Computer Directorate attached to Research Center Imarat under the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). The chip will be ready by May 2011.
“The SoC is also going to be an integral part of [a] futuristic, low-cost navigator system [and] homing guidance seekers, besides providing interface with other avionics subsystems,” a DRDO source says.
