STMicroelectronics, one of the world's largest semiconductor manufacturers, is setting up joint state-of-the-art research and innovation labs at BITS Pilani and IIT Delhi. The partnership agreements aim to combine the best of ST's leading-edge electronic skills and capabilities with the educational and research talents of the two institutes. Both labs are expected to be operational by Q2 2007.

The main objective of these partnerships is to facilitate proliferation of VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) design and embedded systems knowledge among students by undertaking research projects with the involvement of faculty, students and ST representatives. The areas of initial research focus include - but are not limited to - analog and mixed-signal design in the area of VLSI, image and speech pattern recognition, sensory organ modeling and digital data protection in algorithm research, along with generic IP (Intellectual Property) blocks for embedded solutions.

STMicroelectronics will equip the newly set-up labs with the necessary hardware, software tools, reference boards and technology parameters needed for successful execution of projects in the identified areas. BITS Pilani will provide the necessary space on the campus and assign a faculty member to participate in the partnership activities. Students and researchers will work on research projects jointly defined by ST and BITS Pilani.
