VSD - Physical Design Webinar using EDA tool 'Proton'


Be it in any field - Change is inevitable. Let’s change the way we used to do Physical design. This time, no need to install tools on laptop, no licenses needed, no hidden costs, just your gmail login id and you are ready to design your first chip online. Find it hard to believe?

  • Build, Verify and PNR any design, for which you have an RTL
  • Characterize any post-layout design in terms of frequency, net count, instance count, runtime and many more

  • Do entire floorplanning of chip online using steps mentioned in webinar

The lectures are accompanied by hands-on labs.
