Open Hardware Summit: Open down to the transistor!

https___cdn.evbuc.com_images_65381743_37620015542_1_original (1)The 10th Open Hardware Summit will be on March 13th in New York City.  I am looking forward to this talk from Tim ‘mithro’ Ansell:

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!

Be sure to buy tickets before they are sold out!


Here is the exciting schedule:
