Introducing Siddhi TM E-Reader
A book reader tablet
More than 300 Million Children in India and double that number around the world take a heavy backpack full of text books and note books to school each year. Can we reduce that load ?
Siddhi E-Reader Reference Design
A book reader tablet optimized for students from 2nd-10 th grade retailing at Rs.1800 bundled with e-books and direct DC charge from Solar !
Who Is Developing It ?
Dreamchip Electronics Private Limited in partnership with our System Design Automation partner Sankhya Technologies Private Limited
Can We Have Samples ?
Reference samples of Siddhi E-Reader implemented using Siddhi Lite will be available for evaluation by March 2014.

The Smart Technology for your Smart Information Device!
The Dreamchip TM Siddhi SoC platform
Every Smart Information Device (SID) primaly depends on a computer chip for its functionality.
This chip is often called a System-On-Chip or SoC.
Siddhi E-Reader is powered by Dreamchip Siddhi SoC powered by Dreamchip Synthetic Processor technology.
Siddhi Lite is an implementation of Siddhi SoC using field programmble gate array technology(FPGA). Siddhi T40 is a planned version of Siddhi using 40nm semiconductor technology.
A Quick Primer on Processor Technology
Globally micro-processor technologies have evolved through 4 phases -
Generation- 1 Hard Chip
Generation- 2 Soft or Hard Core
Generation- 3 Configurable Core
Generation- 4 Synthetic Processor
A Synthetic Processor is automatically synthesized to fit the needs of a specific application - improving performance, yield and reducing cost and power consumption.
Can I Use Synthetic Processor for Other Applications ?
Yes, Set-Top-Boxes, Industrial Control (PLCs) to High Performance Computing - Synthetic Processors, SoCs and NoCs can be used for a wide-range of applications either over an FPGA platform (or) through a application optimized Silicon Chip based on volumes.
Can I Use Siddhi Now ?
Siddhi-Lite is expected to be available for evaluation starting December 01, 2013 - complete with 32-Bit Synthetic RISC Processor, VGA RGB Display Driver, DRAM Controller and Flash Controller for FPGA development.
Dreamchip Vani (Siddhi + Audio/Video Processors) and Sandesh (Vani + Comunications Processor) expected to be available by April 2014 (FPGA based development kits).
Dreamchip Siddhi SoCs (Test Chips) over 40nm Silicon expected to be available for pre-registered customers during 2014.
