As the open source EDA and silicon community is getting off the ground there is a need for an integrated EDA flow using modern software engineering techniques. PDKMaster is a python framework for:

  • defining a semiconductor technology node and it's devices
  • creating circuits and corresponding layouts
  • interface wiith other (open source) EDA tools

In this talk the current state of the framework will be discussed together with the first apllications of it: scalable standard cell and IO library, SRAM compiler and analog/mixed signal blocks.


General information


  • Stable PDKMaster API ready for external use/contribution
  • V1.0 of scalable standard cell, io ring generator and single port and dual port SRAM compiler
