Q. Consider the following statements regarding “analog chipset called ARYABHAT-1”:
1.It was developed by Indian Institute of Technology – Delhi.
2.It is faster and requires less power than digital chips.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

[A] 1 only

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: B

Explanation: Indian Institute of Science has built a prototype of an analog chipset called ARYABHAT-1 (Analog Reconfigurable Technology and Bias-scalable Hardware for AI Tasks).

  • It will be faster and require less power than the digital chips found in most electronic devices.
  • It would be helpful for Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based applications like object or speech recognition e.g., Alexa or Siri.
  • Different machine learning architectures can be programmed on it and operate across a wide range of temperatures.
