Open down to the transistor! A new revolution in open IC creation
With the slowing of Moore’s Law and the success of the RISC-V ISA there has been a renewed interest in developing truly open integrated circuits (IC). Tim ‘mithro’ Ansell has spent the last 2 years working at Google trying to remove roadblocks and enable the future to be open all the way down to the transistor.
Come find out about how a modern integrated circuit is developed including what software tooling and manufacturing data is needed to build them. The talk will include a background on existing resources, information on both the new DARPA programs enabling new tooling and the new resources Google has released (including a new open source PDK), and finally initial details about a program to help enable everyone (academics, hobbyists and companies) to create integrated circuits that are open down to the transistor!
