Message by Industry Expert to VLSI Aspirants

Open-source EDA has reached several key milestones in the past few years, enabling hobbyists to participate in silicon design. Simultaneously, design tools have become accessible to everyone in the cloud with no up-front cost. As a result, the barriers to developing open-source silicon are quickly eroding. The silicon industry is very suddenly presented with the opportunity to play catch-up with the software industry, which was dramatically transformed over the past few decades under the influence of an open-source community. Release of Google/Skywater-130nm open PDK’s was really the final piece of the entire VLSI training model puzzle.

For freshers and professionals looking forward to serious VLSI training, let me put it in simple words. Remember in college, when we learned a concept in theory sessions, there was this natural curiosity to see the concepts implemented in real electronics labs using resistors, breadboards, 555 timers and so on. Similarly, in the VLSI industry, there is a saying “Is It silicon proven?” Now, “it” can be an IP or EDA tool or a full chip. In this session, we explore the spectrum of open-source EDA tools and capabilities currently available, and we examine how the resulting new opportunities are likely to transform the silicon industry in the coming decade.
