Right from the development of the first commercial ASIC in India, GIST 9000 for processing Indian languages in the 1980s, C-DAC has focused on all aspects of embedded devices to proliferate use of Indian languages. C-DAC has enabled Indian languages on Pagers, Set-Top-Boxes, Dot Matrix Printers, Line Printers, Handheld devices, Digital cameras, etc. C-DAC has also developed a solution to enable Indian languages on mobile phones, allowing users to send SMS and e-mail in their own language. The input mechanism is available both in predictive and non-predictive forms.
