The Microelectronics Support Centre at STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is pleased to announce a Synopsys Custom Compiler Design Contest. The best 2 submissions will be given a free fabrication of either a TSMC 180nm or XFAB 180nm chip fabricated through the Europractice mini@sic program.
Please bring this Design Contest to the attention of your colleagues.
The Contest is open to all Europractice academic member institutes. Synopsys are seeking an innovative real-world design that exhibits the usage of Synopsys Custom Compiler and the mixed signal simulation platform (HSPICE, CustomSim, VCS-AMS). These tools are part of the Europractice/Synopsys Analogue Simulation and Modelling (ASM) bundle http://www.europractice.stfc.ac.uk/software/synopsys.html
Designs will be judged by a committee of Synopsys technical staff. The 2 winners will be chosen based on originality, feasibility, manufacturability and how extensively and well the design has been done and verified with Synopsys products.
The selection criteria will be as follows:
Registration and abstract submission, on the attached form should be completed and emailed as a PDF to MicroelectronicsCentre@stfc.ac.uk by June 7th 2017.
The Final submission of the design description for those who have registered is due by December 7th 2017. The winners will be announced in January 2018 and then invited to submit their GDSII to the next available mini@sic run (TSMC 180nm or XFAB 180nm as appropriate).
STFC is running the practical training course: Introduction to Analogue IC Design, Simulation, Layout and Verification using the Synopsys Custom Compiler tool flow and the XFAB 180nm iPDK on 20th - 22nd March 2017 and on 24th - 26th April 2017.
