Lessons from an Open Source Business

Fred Dixon
2011 Technology Innovation Management Review  
Our main message is that the focus must be on creating a successful open source project first, for without it, no company in the ecosystem can flourish.  ...  Creating a successful company is difficult; but creating a successful company, a successful open source project, and a successful ecosystem all at the same time is much more difficult.  ...  The author explains how his company (Crack Semiconductor) developed commercially successful cryptographic silicon IP using entirely open source EDA technologies and how another company (SiCortex) pushed  ...

Open-source Hardware: Opportunities and Challenges [article]

Gagan Gupta, Tony Nowatzki, Vinay Gangadhar, Karthikeyan Sankaralingam
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We believe that open source can similarly help hardware innovation, but has not yet due to several reasons.  ...  Software innovation, on the other hand, is flourishing, helped in good measure by a thriving open-source ecosystem.  ...  Once the design meets its functional specification, free commercial and/or open-source EDA tools could be used to develop a test-chip, and fabricated using a fab shuttle.  ...

Adapting the DMTCP Plugin Model for Checkpointing of Hardware Emulation [article]

Rohan Garg and Kapil Arya and Jiajun Cao and Gene Cooperman and Jeff Evans and Ankit Garg and Neil A. Rosenberg and K. Suresh
2017 arXiv   pre-print
The plugin model enables a three-way collaboration: allowing a circuit designer and emulator vendor to each contribute separate proprietary plugins while sharing an open source software framework from  ...  The three parties are: the EDA designer, who is concerned with formal verification of a circuit design; the DMTCP developers, who are concerned with providing transparent checkpointing during the circuit  ...  This plugin model has been used recently to demonstrate checkpointing of 32,752 MPI processes on a supercomputer at TACC (Texas Advanced Computing Center) [5] . DMTCP itself is free and open source.  ...

Open source hardware is here to stay

Frank K. Gürkaynak
2021 Zenodo  
In the last five years, open source hardware has moved from being a little-known niche activity to become an essential research vehicle and has even established itself in commercial business plans.  ...  The user group around Open-RISC later ended up founding the Free and Open Source Silicon (FOSSi) Foundation [5] and organized a small meeting called ORConf in 2012.  ...  How does the public, academia and industry benefit from open source hardware? In all reality, if OSH did not have real benefits, it would not survive on its principles alone.  ...

DFM Challenges and Solutions for 14nm FinFET

Ravi Dhanani, Bhavesh Soni
2015 Communications on Applied Electronics  
Along with the DRC/LVS checks which deal with the physical verification processes, in lower technologies nodes, DFM should also be equally given importance as without it, it is impossible to achieve the silicon  ...  But it is not possible to fabricate exactly the same shapes as it looks like on your EDA tools. As we are transforming in advanced nodes, conventional light sources like KrF is no longer useful.  ...  As of now we can use ArF as a light source for 16nm and 14nm with double patterning only due to the limitation of minimum distance which can be fabricated on the silicon.  ...
