Intelligent Computing CHIP is a monthly Information Technology magazine published by Infomedia 18 Ltd. since 2003. It is the Indian edition of the popular German monthly CHIP. CHIP is a registered trademark of Vogel Burda Holding Inc, Germany. Its current assistant editor (technical) is Jamshed Avari.
CHIP was launched in India in March 1998.  It was earlier published in India by Exicom India Ltd from Jasubhai Digital Media under a licensing agreement with Vogel-Veriag of Germany. It touched a circulation of 120,000. However, financial issues led to Jasubhai parting ways with Vogel, and launching their own magazine called Digit.
Later, the magazine was licensed to Infomedia 18. The Magazine carries a free dual layer DVD and a booklet called Chip Plus each month. The DVD contains software, game demos, Linux Distros and tools and Chip archives. It also carries some videos such as Tech Toyz videos and game trailers. Chip Plus is targeted towards beginners and contains guides and tutorials on various technology related matters. It takes a hands-on approach to explaining technology.
Download.CHIP.Asia was a new initiative introduced on December 11, 2008. Download. Chip brings a community feel, similar to one introduced in forums, to the downloads section.
