This will be a huge leap in the Electronics System Design and Manufacturing space by way of inculcating the culture of SoC/System Level Design at the Bachelors, Masters, and Research level and act as a catalyst for the growth of Start-ups involved in the fabless design.

The program would be implemented all over India in about 100 academic institutions/R&D organizations. These include IITs, NITs, IIITs, Government/Private Colleges, and R&D Organizations.

Startups and MSMEs can also participate in the program by submitting their proposals under Academia. The C2S Programme 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 development with the help of academia, industry, start-ups, and R&D establishments.

Under the Programme, based on the Institutions’ expertise, Technology Readiness Level (TRL), and design experience acquired during earlier SMDP Programmes, proposals are invited in 3 categories- Design & Development of Systems/SoCs/ASICs/Reusable IP Cores, Development of Application Oriented Working Prototype of Ips/ASICs/SoCs and Proof of Concept Oriented Research and Development of ASICs/FPGAs.
