Tata Elxsi corporate manager- talent productivity & quality RD Kulkarni said, "The embedded systems market is set to grow exponentially.

Our involvement in terms of providing the industry perspective and expertise will certainly help in meeting this demand in the embedded technology space."
RV-VLSI Design Centre CEO Venkatesh Prasad said, "Today organizations spend a significant amount of time and money in training fresh engineers on embedded technologies to get them productive on projects. This initiative would bring down this time and cost significantly thereby benefiting such organizations. This program will produce industry ready manpower."
