Cloud Based Analog IC Design Hackathon

Hackathon Date: 15 Feb - 8 March 2022
Register Till: 13 February 2022

Registration Closed


To provide a basic hands-on understanding of "Analog IC design", which enhances your practical IC design knowledge, helps to innovate, to create state-of-the-art designs, and integrate them into real-world semiconductor applications.

What is Analog IC design hackathon?

IIT Hyderabad in collaboration with Synopsys & VSD wants to generate skilled manpower in the domain of IC design, which will strengthen the decision of the Indian Government for the silicon revolution. The Indian Govt initiative Chips to Startup (C2S) aims to propel innovation, build domestic capacities to ensure hardware sovereignty, and build a Semiconductor Ecosystem that requires 85,000+ highly trained engineers. Working towards this vision statement, we have planned the 3-Week “Cloud based Analog IC Design Hackathon using Synopsys Custom Design Platform”.


We would like to invite all Indian college students & professionals to explore more about semiconductor designs by participating in this hackathon. Here we will introduce Analog Design concepts and train you to design analog IP using Synopsys tools preinstalled in cloud server.
