India, the land of innovations and revolutions, is on the brink of another technological metamorphosis. And you, the young minds of our great nation, are […]
Read our interview at Electronics for you (EFY) magazine and dive into the transformative world of VLSI with the enlightening article that serves as a beacon for all aspiring electronics enthusiasts. VLSI, or Very Large Scale Integration, isn’t just a technical term; it’s a vision that beckons the future of electronics, breathing life into devices by embedding millions of transistors on a singular chip. This incredible feat of engineering has not only redefined the electronics landscape but has also expanded the horizons of what’s conceivable.
If you have been following VSDOpen for the last 5-years, the theme has been maintained – What VSD did last year and what VSD will do next year
VSDOpen conference is an attempt to bring out some cutting-edge activities especially around open-source EDA with a special focus on skill development using open and proprietary tools. VSDOpen also focuses on milestones achieved by VSD in the past year, and some interesting projects which VSD will be working on in the next year. It’s like the VSD Annual Hands-on meeting where everyone is invited for free and allowed to rate us for our work 🙂
To provide a basic hands-on for design verification, which enhances practical verification knowledge. The verification challenge helps to understand the verification intent to detect bugs in designs, understand debugging and fix the buggy designs. It provides a practical exposure to real world design verification activities
The hackathon aims to generate skilled manpower in the domain of Design Verification, which will strengthen the quality of designs being manufactured. It reduces chip failure, improving the time to market cycle of Semiconductor products.
The Indian government initiative Chips to Startup (C2S) programme aims to propel innovation, build domestic capacities to ensure hardware sovereignty, and build a semiconductor ecosystem that requires 85,000+ highly trained engineers. Working towards this vision statement, we have planned the 3-Week “Capture the Bug” , a Design Verification Challenge.
This Hackathon is organized by NIELIT Calicut and technically facilitated by Vyoma Systems , VLSI System Design & IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and ably mentored by Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras).
VSD promises to deliver similar IP design workshops in upcoming days, followed by the next big leap – SoC design workshop with VSD SoC generator using all VSD IPs developed by VSD community using Skywater 130 nm technology node.
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.
