UIT build Pak’s 1st indigenous open source processor

Pakistan’s best technology institution Usman Institute of Technology (UIT), have build up the country’s 1st home produced open source microprocessor in Karachi.

UIT build Pak's 1st indigenous open source processorThe UIT team leveraged the RISC V based open source architecture to produce the said processor that may transform the local tech manufacturing industry.

Support of UIT’s undergraduate engineering and computer science students, faculty, and a couple of international mentors leg behind this remarkable development.

UIT is the only undergraduate institute in Pakistan to be teaching processor designing based on RISC-V in undergraduate program.

UIT’s single cycle RISC-V processor uses industry standard Chisel programming language. The institute is running RV32I processor core on FPGA and future development include complete RISC-V processor and semiconductor chip development by undergraduate students.

Director UIT Dr. Zahir Ali Syed said “We believe in industry academia linkage and the only way to progress our nation is to develop students for cutting edge industry,”

He further said “We are trying to get Pakistan’s share from the 500 billion dollar global semiconductor industry and trying to make our undergraduate students ready to cash in on that market.”

Dr. Rumi Naqvi is one of the mentors on this project as well as UIT’s adjunct faculty member who has 17 years of IC design experience. He started Micro Electronics Research Laboratory (MERL-UIT) in collaboration with Usman Institute of Technology in June 2019.

Some other top names of mentors on this project include Dr. Ali Ahmed who is Assistant Professor and head of MERL at UIT, Engr. Asad Hussain who is making curriculum for undergraduate engineering students, Engr. Farhan who is teaching industry standard Chisel programming language and core development, and Hadir Khan who is a UIT graduate student leading undergraduate students in various classes.

Govt schools to revive into Science technology schools

Technology will reach new heights and now a-days becomes the golden era in which digital education comes up as the key to success. Considering this, a key plan soon begun to convert all the government schools into ”Science technology schools”.

Govt schools soon revive into Science technology schoolsFederal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry disclosed, saying that the future of Pakistan belongs to technology and country has to cuddle modern technology in order to move forward and stay pace with the 3rd world countries.

In collaboration with education ministry the government would provide modern technology in government schools to work enthusiastically for developing schools as centers of knowledge.

In the S&T program almost 1500 government schools have been selected where government would introduce high-tech education for students to get hold of scientific and technological education.

UET students developed telerobotic system using VR

Pakistani group of students from the UET, Lahore have highly developed telerobotic system that could amplify the use of robotics in local industries.

UET students developed telerobotic system using VRThe team comprises of Armughan Sarwar, Abdullah Humayun, and Muhammad Waseem developed the system as part of the Final Year Project uses robotic manipulators for path planning and re-configuring the path of robots in case of assembly changes.

Robots make repetitive tasks much easier but if the system requires any changes, modifying the patterns is a hard job and requires specialist services. It comprises of a robotic manipulator, a virtual reality headset, a machine vision system and a processing unit.

Project Supervisor, Ahsan Naeem says that the concept of telepresence is used to train the physical robots through a virtual robot.

“The intention is to interact with the robot in a virtual environment through a controller. The movement of the handheld controller is captured through motion capture system. The real physical robot will pursue the same path as of the virtual robot.”

Here’s the question arose what it does if the VR robot mimics the movements of the virtual robot in real time. The system is back-end programmed in such a way that anyone can program the robot to follow a specified path and perform the assigned tasks.
