Dreamchip Electronics, India-based semiconductor start-up, has announced plans for launching SoCs for tablet computers. The SoCs will be available in three variants—Siddhi, Vani, and Sandesh.

Dreamchip will use a proprietary multi-core 32bit RISC and DSP processor architecture and an optimised direct connect architecture for powering these SoCs, the company said.

Each of these has been optimised for a distinct tablet application. Siddhi is designed to power basic student's book reader tablets that are optimised for low cost large volume applications; Vani is targeted towards advanced student's multimedia tablets; and Sandesh is the high-end variant for use in e-governance and e-commerce tablets.

All of the SoCs are designed to help Indian EMCs cater to the needs of rural as well as value conscious urban users and will be accompanied by reference tablet designs and embedded software with the option to support different Indian languages.

"Solutions from Dreamchip Electronics are expected to play a critical role by enabling EMCs to create world-class tablet computers and offer them to customers in India and the rest of the world at competitive rates," said Gopi Kumar Bulusu, founder director, Dreamchip Electronics.

"All the SoCs are expected to be priced in Indian Rupees for the Indian market thereby eliminating risk from exchange rate fluctuations for EMCs."

Prototyping platforms for all three variants will be available by Q3 calendar year 2013 on the Teraptor Consumer Electronics Channel.

Select customers are expected to receive early access FPGA kits and test chips by Q1/Q3 2014 respectively.

The company is currently working on custom designed SoCs for Indian electronic manufacturer TVS Electronics Limited.
