India’s leading vertically integrated communication system and transformative technology solutions provider Saankhya Labs recently unveiled the very new indigenous multi-standard and multi-protocol Pruthvi-3 chipsets in India. This new chipset was introduced to the Indians by the Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications, Shri. Manoj Sinha in the presence of Shri Suresh Angadi, MP, BJP, Shri Amitabh Kant, CEO NITI Aayog, Shri Shashi Shekar Vempati, CEO Prasar Bharti, and Shri Anshu Prakash, Additional Secretary, DoT, Government of India.
Speaking on this occasion, Shri Amitabh Kant, CEO Niti Aayog, said, “We are delighted that Saankhya Labs, a homegrown semiconductor company, has very successfully designed and developed the most advanced multi-standard, next-generation TV system on a chip. This is really remarkable because Indians always get into sunset industries rather than sunrise industries and by the time we do it’s too late. I am particularly delighted that they have 27 international patents. This is a very commendable achievement, and this will propel not only Saankhya Labs, but will propel India into the global arena. It’s a major milestone for India’s semiconductor and hardware industry and will make India self-reliant in communications technology in the long run, as well as contribute to global telecom IPR. I think the time has come that we move from merely being a manufacturing nation to being a knowledge nation which innovates and creates value for the world, which is what Saankhya Labs is doing.”
As claimed by the manufacturer, the new Pruthvi-3 chipsets come with advanced SDR SoC manufactured in 28nm FDSOI process supporting advanced Physical Layer functionality. The company claims that the chipset can deliver optimum performance and enhanced battery backup with very low power consumption. Pruthvi-3 can be used in various communication products including mobile devices, broadcast TV, satellite communications and Defense communications.
