Google Launches New Silicon Design Portal For Open-Source Projects
The Google Open MPW Shuttle Program allows for anyone to submit open-source integrated circuit designs and to see it manufactured at no-cost while leveraging this open-source PDK and other open-source EDA tools. The 130nm manufacturing has also proven still useful for prototyping IoT-like hardware
Build Custom Silicon With Google, At Least For Open-Source Designs
The Open MPW Shuttle Program has seen submissions ranging from the Microwatt OpenPOWER 64-bit core to RISC-V cores to Sudoku accelerators, hardware implementations of various games, SRAM/ReRAM generators, and other small ASICs.
Google partner Efabless has announced the "MPW-6" shuttle is accepting open-source projects for their next round of manufacturing and the submission deadline is 8 June.
To help in the open-source silicon design effort, Google has launched their new design portal at developers.google.com/silicon. More details on the effort via the Google Open-Source Blog.
