Know what Pentagon is? It is a plane figure which has 5-straight sides and 5-angles. For a perfect pentagon, it needs all its sides and angles to be the same, till the last decimal. Do you know what is the similarity between pentagon and our upcoming workshop “Advanced Physical Design workshop using OpenLANE/SKY130”? Look above image and you would guess it right. It is a perfect blend of topics where even a fresher can jump-start his/her career in chip design in just 5-days
Trust me – KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER to students is MOST SATISFYING feeling.
The key thing over here – It must be short and crisp so everyone can enjoy the topic. These are memorable times, where everyone needs to do their bit to fight a battle against an unknown enemy. You need not make new slides, you are free to present your personal/company slides, provided it’s available on public platform.
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.
DRC is something which (most likely) is supposed to fail in first instance. Let’s see what you do to fix them. In below eg. drc count is 25. Qrouter (an open-source router, which will be discussed in detail in webinar) is really good with some standard cell sets like the one which comes distributed with qflow, like OSU018, they are really nice one’s to work with. All the ports have nice squares, they don’t have these inside ‘L’ corners as shown below.
A working chip is all using opensource EDA tools (no more license fee). Of course, its taped-out in 180nm technology. But who knows, this might be just the beginning. Upcoming blogs will talk more about the commercial angle of this. Let’s see how it is going to benefit student/professionals/innovators community
Do you want to find your answers too? Enroll in the upcoming webinar on “Distributed timing analysis” with Tsung-Wei, do labs on your own, understand the framework and I can guarantee you would be a better STA engineer or Lead than you were before 26th May.
