What I did in 8-weeks-VSD Internship? On-chip PLL using Sky130

In this 8-week internship I spent the first week on researching existing work and making design decisions for the PLL components namely – Phase Frequency Detector, Charge Pump, Voltage Controlled Oscillator and Frequency Divider. I also looked into linking of the Sky130nm PDK with SPICE for the circuit implementation.

A tribute to opensource (EDA and ISA)

Since then, we have promoted courses using a lot of open-source EDA tools like Opentimer for STA, qflow for Physical design, TL-verilog for pipelining, Yosys for Synthesis, Proton for EDA and many more. Not only that, we have organized an online conference (as you might be aware) and here’s the link with details:
