This article demonstrates that complete open-source tooling can be used to design industrial quality digital circuits. Using the OpenLane framework, based itself on the OpenROAD tool 2, the researchers show a complete set of RISCV-based SoC. In this article, the researchers show a progression of work in tools, flows, reference designs, and an overall ecosystem in which we have been able to demonstrate the practical use of available open-source EDA tool flows to design, manufacture, and validate chips with first-time success. They have attempted to keep these designs open-source from end to end.
