    • Bio Chips : A medical Revolution developed to sequence unknown genes and to study gene expression. but the working principle suggest that they can be used for engineering application that require parallel processing. DNA chips are proposed here as the physical substrate to store and evaluate a set of rules for knowledge based systems. In DNA chips, each cell uses millions of copies of DNA sequence called probes. The colors indicate that probes are different between cells
    • Bio Chips : Design Steps Fig(1) Single stranded DNA sequences Fig2 Nucleotide with pyrimidine base and Purine base Simplified Diagram for Fig3
    • Bio Chips : Design Steps Fig4:DNA sequence tagged with the quantum dots. Here half circle represent Single stranded DNA Sequence and Small dot is the quantum dot Fig5:Complementary probes and target bind to fluorescent DNA helix. In practice , there are millions of probes per cells ,so millions of targets are required to produce Fluorescent cell after hybridization Fig6: plant states are sampled and A/DNA Converter produce millions of two tagged DNA sequences. Small dot is quantum dot used to identify helix Fig7:DNA chip is injected with millions of tagged DNA strands. After Scanning the chip and processing the rules o/p is produced Fig8: DNA chip can be used to detect faults in the plant. State variables are sampled ,converted into DNA target and injected into chip. The green cells are fluorescent probes after being excited with UV light
    • Look up tables as DNA Chips: Rule Based System Basically , look up table is derived from the past experience and it can be used to improve the performance of the closed loop with an existing controller (fig 9) . The rules are stored on the chip and the evaluation of the complete rule base at each sampling instant is carried out in parallel using the hybridization of DNA strands.
      • Applications:
      • To store boolean or fuzzy rules

This chip could then be interfaced with computer to generate fully generated phoneme recognition system
    • Neuro Chip : Design Dreams Recently revolutionary Invention of Neuro Chip wondered the world : if it mixed with our nervous system ,it will control Brain’s nervous system and then according to the program one can control on his thinking ability also. Are you not thinking that designing dream is also not impossible ? See my article in “The Times Of India” Education Times dated sept,30,03 on “VLSI DSP & Embedded Systems : Emerging Careers”
      • Chip Design Productivity
      • Chip Design Forecast
      • World Fab Industry Vs. Indian Fab Industry
      • Why Fab lab doesn’t exist in India?
      • Challenges before Chip Design & Fab lab
    • Chip Design Productivity Fig1: Actual No. of Transistors in millions per IC design. This data illustrates that there is little correlation between transistors count and engineering effort Fig2: Normalized Transistors count Vs. Persons week Fig 3: Factors Influencing IC Design Effort Design Productivity = output produced /labour expended = output per unit worker hour Manufacturing productivity = value added/labour expended = value added per unit worker hour. = (end product selling price- material cost of the product) worker hour = dollars per worker hour Chip design productivity ≠ transistor /gate per unit engineering effort. Chip design productivity = chip design complexity/ engineering effort. = complexity per unit engineering hour. = normalized transistors per person-hour.
    • Chip Design Fore cast 1.According to a Gartner forecast: 3 per cent growth in global semiconductor revenue ,2003 &quot;after its worst fall ever in 2001.&quot; (2) India's chip design industry :revenues of Rs 1,500 crore ($ 300 million), (3) Indian Market Share : not up to the mark but in three-four years ,it will reach on standard mark. According to a Monster India.com report, &quot;The integrated circuit (chip) design industry is pegged to grow into a multi-million dollar industry in India, thanks to the US slowdown.&quot; (4) Indian Design Industry: performing well and going global. large semiconductor vendors are growing their operations in India.
    • World Fabrication Industry Vs. Indian Fabrication Industry 5. Fab Industry: (a) Around 50 Fab lab Exist in the world,another 50 in near future (b) First fab lab by Intel Just open in Taiwan ,first in South Asia. (c) No Complete VLSI Fab Industry In India, (d) SCL ,Chandigarh has its own LSI Fab lab. (e) Proposal : Rs.1500 crore (for Indian Govt) (f) Recently Two Companies joined forces in Fab Industry like IBM/siemens for 64 Mb Technology and IBM, Siemens &Toshiba for 256 Mb Technology. 6.Huge Investment Required for Design and Fab Lab: According to Mr Girish of Texas Instruments, &quot;It's not feasible for many small Indian companies to make sustained investments for a long period of time, which is required for product development (including the area of chips design/manufacture). I don't think we can do that now. Also, to get into full-scale manufacturing, the government should also take some efforts. It has to take a decision to shift manufacturing units to smaller towns instead of concentrating on the metros.&quot;
    • Fab lab does not exist : why?
      • Huge Fabrication lab cost
      • According to Mr Girish of Texas Instruments, &quot;It's not feasible for many small Indian companies to make sustained investments for a long period of time, which is required for product development (including the area of chips design/manufacture).

      • (2)Design Incompetency, Probably India is not prepared .
      • The actual problem is that quality talent with the right skills is becoming scarce. The skills required are in vertical domains (DSP, telecom etc.) along with in-depth understanding of chip design challenges like designing for high speed, low power, small size, handling large complexities, accounting for deep sub-micron effects like signal integrity. This is assuming that these engineers come with basic microelectronics skills including an understanding of semiconductors and design basics like language-based design methodologies. Exposure to contemporary design tools is also important.&quot;
    • Challenges before Chip Design and Fab Industry
      • System Level Integration:
      • According to Mr. S.Surinder Lall , Sr Marketic Manager , Xilinx Inc. (St.Pitsberg) during my words with him :There is still requirement of System Engineers who can understand the complete system. The trend towards coding is to write code in C/C++, Matlab/Java and then converted into VHDL/VERILOG, is not suitable. Chip Design has a long walk to travel”.
      • 2. Chip Design Limits : There is Physical Limits to the Chip Design , reported by New york Times by at Paul Packan, a scientist with Intel Corp., the world's largest chipmaker, said semiconductor engineers have not found ways around basic physical limits beyond the generation of silicon chips that will begin to appear next year. Packan called the apparent impasse &quot;the most difficult challenge the semiconductor industry has ever faced.&quot;
      • &quot;These fundamental issues have not previously limited the scaling of transistors,&quot; Packan wrote in the Sept. 24 issue of Science. &quot;There are currently no known solutions to these problems.&quot;
      • According to Dennis Allison, a Silicon Valley physicist and computer designer
      • If the miniaturization process for silicon-based transistors is halted, hopes for continued progress would have to be based on new materials, new transistor designs and advances like molecular computing, the Times reported . This Mystry will be solved ultimately .
    • Conclusion: Despite all these stiff challenges , Chip Design Industry is growing not wittingly fast and are affecting even common mass to go nuclear as well as global . Indian Fabrication Industry is the biggest challenge and dream also . Let us see when this dream comes true.
