OpenPOWER Summit 2021

SoC in Hours - A Power Chat
2021-10-28, 10:30–14:30, RoomD

SoC in Hours - A Power Chat
1. OpenPOWER - A matured ISA
2. Art of System Building - Its Libre-SoC
3. Microwatt in FPGA - A Rapid Flow
4. Tapeout Microwatt in a click
5. Bug the SoC - A Fire test


This is a tutorial to make a System on Chip in a few hours. This completely covers OpenPOWER based SOC design flow right from the OpenPOWER ISA to GDS II tapeout file generation, surprisingly within a few hours.
The additional feature is that this tutorial also covers testing of SoC, which most of the events less concentrate on.
