GUJCOST sponsored One-Week National Level STTP on “System on Chip Design: Trends and Tools”

One-Week National Level Short Term Training Program (STTP) on “System on Chip Design: Trends and Tools” organised during January 4-8, 2021 from 9.15 am to 4.15 pm. This STTP was sponsored by Gujarat Council on Science and Technology (GUJCOST) and was conducted through online mode using WebEx platform. The webinar was coordinated by Dr Manish I Patel and Dr Nagendra P Gajjar from Electronics and Communication Engineering Department, IT-NU. The inaugural session was chaired by the Director, IT-NU and the HoD, Electronics and Communication Engineering Department, IT-NU. The coordinators, Dr Nagendra Gajjar and Dr Mainish I Patel along with the following experts conducted sessions in the STTP:

  • Mr Nandan Tripathi, NVIDIA, Bangalore
  • Dr Amit Bhatt, DAIICT, Gandhinagar
  • Mr Prakash Ganesh, Coreel Technology, Bangalore
  • Mr Kishore Siddani, Mathworks
  • Mr TVS Ram, SAC-ISRO, Ahmedabad
  • Mr Vidhu Mouli, Xilinx, Hyderabad
  • Mr Pinal Patel, eInfochip, Ahmedabad
  • Mr Kaushal Modi, eInfochip, Ahmedabad
  • Mrs Amrutha Nair, eInfochip, Ahmedabad
  • Dr Mithilesh Jha, Infineon, Bangalore
  • Mr Himanshu Patel, SAC-ISRO, Ahmedabad

The objective of the STTP was to provide a comprehensive overview of the design criteria, methodology, skills and knowledge which are needed for a SoC designer. Along with the theory sessions hands-on sessions and recent trends in SoC designing and the related tools was the key focus of the STTP.

The registration of the workshop at a nominal charge was open for engineering students of UG, PG and PhD program, faculty members and industry personnel across the nation. Total fifty nine participants attended the STTP. The feedback  received from the participants was overwhelming.

The content covered in the STTP were as follows:

  1. SoC Processors and Architecture
  2. IPs for SoC
  3. Tools like Xilinx Vivado, IP Integrator, Vitis, Vivado HLS
  4. SoC Design Flow
  5. Design and Prototype FPGA/SoC using MATLAB and Simulink
  6. Recent Trends in SoC Platforms on FPGA
  7. SoC Testing and Verification
  8. SoC Applications in Automobile and Indian Space Program

Certificates were issued to all the participants who attended the sessions.
