India is very clear on the future of VLSI and Semiconductors - We are going big We are so glad to announce the launch of the next PAN-India hackathon on "*Mixed-signal SoC Design using eSim & SKY130*" in collaboration with FOSSEE Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay and VLSI System Design (VSD), sponsored by Google We have come a very long way, and this is the 5th hackathon for 2022 (7th overall). PAN India Semiconductor hackathons have enabled more than 10000+ engineers across various states of India to showcase their talent in front of the entire world, leading to the innovation of great products like CAD and IP solutions, both in commercial and open source space Thanks to Prof. Kannan Moudgalya for leading the team from the front toward building a complete mixed-signal SoC design and solution using open-source eSim and 130nm PDK from SkyWater Technology Foundry. And a big vote of thanks to Tim Ansell for trusting our team and enabling us with all resources which we needed for successfully launching this hackathon. We have spent many months and man-hours configuring the entire mixed-signal solution for SKY130 and finally, we are here Register for the hackathon using the below link (It's free), experience the solution on your own and build complex mixed-signal SoCs - complete opensource All the best and happy learning
