About us

Mission : Design a Chip at $0

We are supporting a community where millions of people are learning, sharing, and collaborating to build a chip together.At VSD, we are promoting a proven method of collaboration to design, implement, and optimize VLSI devices.The freedom to see the design, to learn from it, to ask questions and offer improvements: This is the open source way.

VSD partners with open-source developers to develop the vsdflow to create a platform for the community to accelerate the design and implementation of a chip. And open-source developers partner with VSD to build a variety of chip and RTL components that enhance the platform and strengthen the community.

Practice Areas:

  • RTL design, Synthesis and Verification
  • SoC planning and Design
  • Sign-off analysis
  • IP Design
  • CAD/EDA automation and basic UNIX/IT
  • RISC-V, Machine intelligence in EDA/CA
  • Embedded System and FPGA

"When the best design works, great idea is born"

University Training Partner :-EICT Academy, IIT Guwahati

VSD has partnered with EICT Academy IIT Guwahati to conduct online workshops and training program to develop the skilled open source community !!

About E&ICT Academy : MeitY has sponsored a scheme entitled "Scheme of Financial Assistance for setting up of Electronics and ICT Academies". Electronics and ICT Academy would aim to provide specialized training to the faculties of Engineering, Arts, Commerce & Science colleges, Polytechnics etc, by developing state-of-the-art facilities.

Academy has planned short term training programmes on fundamental and advanced topics in IT, Electronics & Communication, Product Design, Manufacturing with hands on training and project work using latest software tools and systems.

In addition, the Academy will conduct specialized/customized training programmes and research promotion workshops for corporate sector & educational institutions. It is envisaged that the Electronics and ICT Academy will become a central hub of activities on training, consultancy work and entrepreneurship programmes.
