public project


Riscduino is a 32 bit RISC V based SOC design pin compatible to arudino platform and this soc targetted for efabless Shuttle program. This project uses only open source tool set for simulation,synthesis and backend tools. The SOC flow follow the openlane methodology and SOC environment is compatible with efabless/carvel methodology.
