With the rise of open-source EDA, creating their own chips has become more accessible. Education-oriented projects, like Tiny Tapeout, minimize the entry barrier significantly. Yet, silicon fabrication remains a complex, costly, and time-consuming process. In this talk, Liberty74 is presented, which allows digital designs to be synthesized, simulated, and implemented using discrete SMD components on PCBs. The flow exclusively uses open-source tools such as Yosys for synthesis, Verilator for simulation, and OpenROAD and KiCad for the layout of the final PCB.
