    Come on bro let’s use every available X86 patent to make our own 2GHz 180nm 486 DX5.

    32-bit Arch Linux, low end or older AMD GPU with integrated graphics and BOOM.

    All designed in your grandmomma’s subterranean enclave.

    (But for real though, like, maybe someone is a brilliant basement genius, who knows I guess.)

    Awesome. Now the people making that Libre GPU/RISC-V/POWER/SOC can show how much great work they've done for all the grant money they took...
    Which SOC is that?

      They already fabricated the chips through TSMC's 180nm node via Skywater.

      That already happened just over a year ago (around June/July 2021).

        The open source tools for digital simulation/verification, synthesis and implementation are pretty decent. However, there is a huge hole to fill for open source tools for custom analog design, simulation/verification and layout. The ones that I know of are lightyears behind even the entry-level industry tools (Cadence, Mentor, Synopsys, et. al.). If anyone knows of any active projects on good analog IC tools, please let me know.
