Saankhya Labs, which is a Bangalore based IT company has now revealed the first developed electronic chipset that can be used for the functions like the direct TV broadcast on the smartphones, curbing the calls drops and 5G connections.
“Saankhya Labs, a Bengaluru-Based company is launching it’s indigenously designed and developed, the world’s first and most advanced multi-standard next-generation TV system on the chip,” Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha said after unveiling the chipset.
All the electronic chipsets are now going to be considered as the heart of the latest modern devices, and have developed by the foreign companies as of now. None of them is made in India because there is no modern semiconductor manufacturing plant in the country.
The electronic chipsets of the Saankhya Labs are also being manufacturing and developed at the Samsung facility in South Korea “I am also told that this broadband-broadcast convergence technology has great potential to minimize or eliminate call quality issues faced by telecom operators today,” Sinha said.
Saankhya Labs co-founder and CEO Parag Naik said that the chipset would be going to help in separating the video content from a mobile network and thus reduce the load on the spectrum for improving the quality of the call.
Saankhya’s Pruthvi-3 chipset will also be able to facilitate some of the direct transmission of video in the smartphones and can also help to convert an Android-based smartphone into a satellite phone.
“Semiconductor technology takes time in maturing and adoption. Original design manufacturers will incorporate our chipsets into various products. We will try for getting certain standards based on our technology incorporated in 5G services. Our chipsets are 30 percent more efficient in output compared to our nearest competitor and 50 percent cheaper too,” he said.
The company already has its clients located in China and the US and bagged some of the orders to supply the 5 million chipsets for the various kinds of smartphones.
“We are looking at 50% year-on-year growth in business. In this financial year, we are expecting sales of around $14-15 million (Rs 98-105 crore). We have advance orders for supplying 5 million chipsets to companies in the US that they will use in tablets (PCs), television gateways, etc. This order will be completed by the first quarter of 2020,” Naik said.
