Hey There, Now that it’s clear, that we can tapeout using open-source EDA tools (referring to recent RavenSoC tapeout by Efabless Corp. Pvt. Ltd. using […]
Hey There – Think about it!! Today’s version of open-source EDA tools, work very well for hierarchical designs sub-25k instance count. For hierarchical designs ~500k […]
Few months back, I had posted the below floorplan of picoSoC, which is a simple (yet powerful) example of SoC using picoRV32, which can run code directly from SPI flash chip and can be used as a turn-key solution for trivial tasks in ASIC and FPGA designs
That’s exactly what happened in DAC2018 at Moscone Center, San Francisco. I was invited for a talk in DAC summer school, on my work “vsdflow” which is also one of the main topics of discussion in my “TCL programming” course on Udemy. I would say, the entire DAC was a journey of events, exchange of ideas between brightest minds of the world.
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
online VLSI courses using open-source tools, VSDSYNTH, our new product (currently in beta testing) is unique UI that will take in inputs in form of RTL netlist and read standard SDC format constraints. The UI will generate synthesized netlist and pre-layout timing reports, hereby giving you first hand information on the quality of your RTL design
Hello Or atleast analyze full chip timing? No…..Then get it ready soon… We will soon be launching course on static timing analysis – part 2 […]
