Location(s)Zurich, ETH

The third Free Silicon Conference (FSiC) will be held at ETH Zurich (Switzerland) on June 4-6 2020, and it will build on top of the 2019 edition. The conference will bring together experts and enthusiasts who want to build a complete Free and Open Source CAD ecosystem for designing analog and digital integrated circuits. The conference will cover the full spectrum of the design process, from system architecture, to layout and verification. The conference consists of three full days, including a Saturday for facilitating those who are involved as non-professionals. After the daily talks, the discussion will continue until late in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.
