Training courses on selected Europractice supported IC, MEMS and Photonics design flows

Europractice – forthcoming training courses

The Europractice partners - imec, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Fraunhofer IIS - are pleased to bring you details of forthcoming low cost training courses on selected Europractice supported IC design flows.  As well as offering you the chance to attend, we would be grateful if you would bring these training courses to the attention of your colleagues who you feel may be interested in attending.

Courses scheduled to June 2017 are as follows.  Other courses, plus alternative dates for some of the following, are also scheduled from September to December 2017. 

  • 03-Apr-2017 for 3 days Advanced Low Power Digital IC Implementation, at STFC
  • 24-Apr-2017 for 3 days Introduction to Analogue IC Design, Simulation, Layout and Verification, at STFC
  • 27-Apr-2017 for 2 days Imagination MIPS M5150 / M5100 Processor Integration and IC Implementation, at STFC
  • 08-May-2017 for 3 days Silicon Photonics Training, at imec 
  • 08-May-2017 for 5 days Introduction to Analogue and Mixed Signal IC Design, at STFC
  • 22-May-2017 for 5 days Comprehensive Digital IC Implementation & Sign-Off, at STFC
  • 30-May-2017 for 2 days Tutorial on IHP SG25H4EPIC Technology for Electronic-Photonic ICs, at Fraunhofer IIS
  • 05-Jun-2017 for 2 days Introduction to MEMS – IC co-design, at STFC
  • 12-Jun-2017 for 5 days VHDL Language and Design Flow, at imec
  • 12-Jun-2017 for 2 days Advanced Analogue IC Design, at STFC

Details of the courses, the full schedule and online booking on the central course booking website 

These Europractice courses will examine a specific design flow and, through a mixture of lecture and practical sessions will enable delegates to better understand the challenges and how to address these by appropriate use of design tools and design methodologies.

All courses will include practical sessions that will use design tools that are available to Europractice members through the Europractice design tool service (software service) and will use technologies (where appropriate) from the Europractice IC service (MPW service).

The courses are provided by staff from the Europractice partners and will be held at the partners’ dedicated training facilities in Leuven, Belgium (imec), near Didcot, UK (STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory), and in Erlangen, Germany (Fraunhofer IIS).

These training courses are open to Professors, Lecturers, Academic Staff and postgraduate students at low cost from established academic sites who are either Academic or Research Laboratory members of Europractice.

The central course booking website is maintained is maintained by STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory on behalf of the partners.  General questions regarding the training courses or the booking process should be directed to in the first instance.
