The C2S Programme, as per MeitY, addresses each entity of the value chain in electronics viz. quality manpower training, research and development, hardware IPs design, system design, application-oriented R&D, prototype design and deployment with the help of academia, industry, start-ups and R&D establishments.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information (MeitY) has sought applications from 100 academia, R&D organisations, start-ups and MSMEs under its Chips to Startup (C2S) Programme. The Chips to Startup (C2S) Programme aims to train 85,000 number of high-quality and qualified engineers in the area of very large-scale integration (VLSI) and embedded system design as well as result in development of 175 ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits), working prototypes of 20 System on Chips (SoC) and IP Core repository over a period of five years.

“This will be a step towards leapfrogging in the Electronics System Design & Manufacturing (ESDM) space by way of inculcating the culture of SoC/ System Level Design at Bachelors, Masters and Research level and act as a catalyst for growth of Start-ups involved in fabless design,” read an official statement by MeitY.

The programme is planned to be implemented at about 100 academic institutions/R&D organisations across the country (including IITs, NITs, IIITs, Government/Private Colleges and R&D Organisations). Startups and MSMEs can also participate in the programme by submitting their proposals under academia-industry collaborative project, grand challenge/hackathons/RFP for development of System/SoC/IP Core(s).

The C2S Programme, as per MeitY, addresses each entity of the value chain in electronics viz. quality manpower training, research and development, hardware IPs design, system design, application-oriented R&D, prototype design and deployment with the help of academia, industry, start-ups and R&D establishments. Online applications are open at the Chips to Startup (C2S) website until January 31, 2022.

Proposals are invited in three different categories, i.e., Design and Development of Systems/SoCs/ASICs/Reusable IP Core(s), Development of Application Oriented Working Prototype of IPs/ASICs/SoCs, and Proof of Concept oriented Research and Development of ASICs/FPGAs.

The project proposals should be submitted at C2S portal (www.c2s.gov.in) in the format prescribed at the portal. The institutions applying under the programme should meet the eligibility criteria defined at the portal and should be in line with the proposals’ guidelines. C-DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing), a scientific society operating under MeitY, will serve as the nodal agency for the programme.
