Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a global frontrunner in IT services, consulting, and business solutions (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), has formed a strategic collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-Bombay), to pioneer India’s inaugural Quantum Diamond Microchip Imager.

Key highlights :

  • The Quantum Diamond Microchip Imager, a cutting-edge sensing device for semiconductor chip imaging, promises to minimize chip failures and enhance the efficiency of electronic devices.
  • The joint effort between TCS and IIT-Bombay to create a quantum imaging platform for the non-destructive inspection of chips marks a pioneering initiative in India.
  • This project is in line with the Government of India‚Äôs National Quantum Mission, which aims to establish the country as a frontrunner in global quantum technology.

This cutting-edge sensing tool harbors the potential to revolutionize semiconductor chip examination, curbing chip failures, and amplifying the energy efficiency of electronic devices. Over the ensuing two years, TCS experts will collaborate with Dr. Kasturi Saha, Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at IIT-Bombay, to cultivate the quantum imaging platform at the PQuest Lab.

This initiative aims to enhance semiconductor chip quality control, thus bolstering the reliability, safety, and energy efficiency of electrical devices. Semiconductor chips serve as vital components in modern electronic devices, imbuing them with intelligence and efficiency.

By processing data and executing tasks, these chips serve as the cognitive core across various sectors, including communications, computing, healthcare, military systems, transportation, clean energy, and more.

Dr. Kasturi Saha from IIT-Bombay is excited to collaborate with TCS on a quantum imaging platform for chip examination. Dr. Harrick Vin of TCS sees this as crucial for the Second Quantum Revolution and believes it will transform industries from electronics to healthcare.

The partnership between TCS and IIT-Bombay is in harmony with India’s National Quantum Mission, a government initiative aimed at establishing the nation as a frontrunner in quantum technology globally. The development of an indigenous Quantum Diamond Microchip Imager, combining quantum diamond microscopy with AI/ML-driven software imaging, will propel India forward in the Quantum Revolution.
