The ‘NTinyE,’ the country’s first totally ingenuously designed microprocessor, has passed full functional testing at the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST).
Dr. Rizwan Riaz, ProRector (Research, Innovation, and Commercialisation), National University of Science and Technology (NUST), announced this at a press conference on Monday alongside Principal SEECS, Dr. Ajmal Khan, and NTiny design and development team leader, Dr. Rehan Ahmed.
Dr. Rizwan Riaz, who spoke at the event, said that the embedded microprocessor chip was built by the NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science’s research team (SEECS).
Semiconductor chips, he explained, are at the heart of all electrical devices and consumer goods that we use on a daily basis.
In 2021, global semiconductor sales will exceed $556 billion, yet Pakistan will miss out on this lucrative industry.
