The industrial grade Shakti processors are for embedded applications, robotic controllers, and IoT boards.
New Delhi: Global technology company Altair on Monday said that it is collaborating with Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) to add the Shakti processor to the support portfolio of Altair Embed.
According to the software computing firm, the industrial grade Shakti processors are for embedded applications, robotic controllers, and IoT boards.
Peter Darnell, chief scientist, Altair, said, “Collaboration with academic institutions is a powerful and effective tool to advance technological initiatives. We have been following the open-source RISC V architecture for some time and it’s exciting to see Prof Kamakoti and IIT Madras make such creative use of it.”
Prof V Kamakoti, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT-M, said, “It was exciting to build an indigenous processor from scratch and more exciting to take it to a production level. It was largely a student-driven effort backed by industry veterans who dedicated themselves to the project never-minding a large pay cut.”
Altair Embed is a tool for model-based firmware development of embedded systems, including motor control, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and vision systems. It provides a visual environment to build and validate reliable embedded systems via simulation or hardware-in-the-loop (HIL). Altair Embed helps users iterate code faster and improve system efficiency, giving confidence that embedded systems are production-ready, the company said in a media release.
