Online Certificate Training Programme on “VLSI System Design using open source EDA”

(23 – 27 September 2019 LIVE Streaming ONLINE),

In association with

Objective : Building a chip is like building a city…

We will review major components of chip designing and move from “chip designing” to “chip planning”

Chip Planning involves lot of decision making like, analog peripheral (ADC, DAC, POR, etc.), digital peripheral(UART, flash controller), memory mapping, top level connections like pad-frame, level-shifters, GPIO and many more.

Course Contents:

  • Day 1: To study the importance of standard cell library and design & characterize one cell using MAGIC Layout tool and ngSPICE for SPICE simulations.(Theory – 3 hours, Lab – 3 hours)
  • Day 2: To study various components of RISC-Vmicroprocessor based SoC and review all componentsusing MAGIC Layout tool.
    (Theory – 2 hours, Lab – 4 hours)
  • Day 3: To do pre-layout timing analysis of SoC using OpenSTA, chip planning using MAGIC and block-level placement/routing using qflow RTL2GDS opensource EDA toolchain. (Theory – 2 hours, Lab – 4 hours)
  • Day 4: To do hierarchical placement/routing using pads and blocks, and perform sign-off checks viz.LVS/DRC using Magic. (Theory – 1 hour, Lab – 5 hours)
  • Day 5: To perform post-layout timing analysis using OpenSTA and engineering change order (ECO) using Tritonsizer. (Theory – 3 hours, Lab – 3 hours)

Course Outcome :

  • Build, Verify and PNR any design, for which you have an RTL
  • Do entire floor planning of chip using open-source EDAtools
  • Characterize any post-layout design in terms of frequency, net count, instance count, runtime and many more
  • Run a full physical design flow from RTL design to GDSII, making it ready for tape-out.
  • Students will be able to do a real full chip static timing analysis with $0 spent, as designs and tools used in thisworkshop are open-source.
