Workshop on ASIC and FPGA Design using Mentor Graphics

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Amritapuri campus, conducted a two day workshop on ASIC and FPGA design using Mentor Graphics by Mr. Santhosh T. R. of Trident Techlabs Private Limited from February 17-18, 2017.

Total of 20 participants attended the workshop which included faculty and research scholars.

The workshop introduced various Mentor Graphics Tools that are used for FPGA and ASIC design. Workshop also introduced on how to design electronic circuits and verify the same using the tools.

This workshop was designed to have understanding: 

  1. On EDA Tools and their Environment. 
  2. Schematic capture and Layout drawing of circuits. 
  3. How to effectively perform Simulation & Synthesis. 

The workshop started with FPGA Flow and introduced Simulation, Code coverage with Questa sim. Hands on session on how to work with HDL Designer and synthesis with Precision RTL and with Leonardo Spectrum was covered on the first day of the workshop.

On the second day the Mr. Santhosh gave introduction to ASIC together with hands on session on circuit design and analysis using ASIC. Drawing Layout and Physical Verification-Power of Calibre was also discussed in the workshop.
