For hierarchical designs ~500k instance count, participants are expected to develop code which will build clock tree for a design which has close to ~50k sequential flip-flops using default routing rules

Online university Course name – Foundation of Computer Systems Design
This course is being taught by Prof. V. Kamakoti, who needs no introduction, who lead India’s first RISC-V microprocessor SHAKTI teamand made all of us proud.
With learning being online, SHAKTI core and ‘vsdflow’ being opensource, this is first-time in the history of VLSI design & EDA (thanks to RISC-V ecosystem and Shakti Team at IITM lead by Prof. Kamakoti), a chip will ever be taped-out using all open source flow, which will cater to almost 80% Indian Semiconductor Market.
It wasn’t that bigger deal for Intel because they thought, at the time, it will be 250,000 chips will be sold for 5 years, which isn’t that many. But they were wrong. It was a 100Million computers were sold. And suddenly 8086 from being an emergency back-up was an over-night success and had a very bright future, because it was binary compatible of PC software, and so had great opportunity
Isn’t that an inspiring story?
Your feedback has been continuously pushing us to the edge. And I really want to Thank You for all the support you have been giving over the past. Its due to this push, we are now releasing (especially for VLSI freshers), a package, which you just need to download/run. That would install all opensource EDA tools on your UNIX machine plus run a complete RTL-2-GDS on RISC-V core ‘picorv32’.
All you need to do is go to below github link, and follow simple 5 steps given in the README of below link:
