Proxelera, Mysuru’s first chip design company, establishes VLSI design centre at SJCE-STEP

Mysore/Mysuru: Mysuru is emerging as a premier start-up hub in the country and is well placed as far as innovation spirit, co-working, incubation, academic and early stage accelerator programmes are concerned. Even considering the quality and cost of living, Mysuru is the next obvious destination after Bengaluru as it provides access to the best academia, infrastructure and connectivity, said Dr. E.V. Ramana Reddy, Additional Chief Secretary, Department of Electronics, IT, BT, Science and Technology, Government of Karnataka.

He was virtually addressing the inaugural event of ‘Proxelera’, Mysuru’s first chip design company to establish a VLSI design centre. The event was held at Seminar Hall in SJCE-STEP office, JSS technical institutions campus, by SJCE-STEP in association with KDEM (Karnataka Digital Economy Mission).

“We are looking at Mysuru to offer the best research and educational institutions, academia, IT companies and industries to come together in a synergistic manner and create an ecosystem where the best start-ups in the country will have a chance to thrive,” he said.

“The stakeholders of Mysuru are responsible for the way the city is becoming a start-up hub with focus on innovation. Industry leaders and technological giants like Infosys, Wipro, L&T and others have played a huge role in nurturing local talent and giving them global exposure,” Dr. Ramana Reddy said.

“The semiconductor chip designing and manufacturing sector in Mysuru will get a boost with ‘Proxelera’ — a leader in VLSI design — opening its design centre in the SJCE STEP incubation centre. It will generate huge employment opportunities for skilled manpower,” he noted.

Suttur Mutt Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji inaugurated the new incubation block.

    Within the next 10 years Mysuru will overtake Bengaluru in traffic jams and every ill urbanization brings in.Mysuru is not a city to bring in industries. I lived in Mysuru during early seventies. It was such a beautiful city. Last year when I went there I was horrified. This is not development. This is irreversible destruction of our rich cultural heritage. Sheer greed is blinding the concept of what is real development .

  2. Swastik C. says:

    Great to read this news …. But smart innovation based long term solutions are the need of the hour for the urban development in cities like Bengaluru and Mysuru, otherwise these two cities would fail to harness and maintain the start up business ecosystem due to the cluttered and poorly planned infrastructure.

  3. Anonymous Mysorean says:

    Replying to an earlier comment: Sir, this is my humble opinion. Sure, it may inconvenience you a little by having you spend more time on the road, the next time you visit Mysyru. But for people living here, this is real development because this will provide stable jobs and career development.

    I also do not see how this is “destroying” our cultural heritage. Rather, I think engineering has been a core heritage of ours, a prime example being Sir M. Visvesvaraya. Mysuru is not a museum to be preserved, it’s a city full of living, breathing people with hopes and aspirations.

    So, The Government now is deciding to destroy the Cultural city. #GetBackITFromMysore…Save Mysore from IT Industries.

    Bangalore is finished. Let’s all go to mysore now.

  7. Padma Chengappa says:

    But this is, unfortunately, the trend all over the world. Need to keep up, no other choice, between the devil and the deep sea. I can understand the ones lamenting, meantime those rejoicing.
    I still prefer Mysuru to Bengaluru, for how long,
    that needs to be seen.
