BANGALORE, INDIA: Two students of the RMK Engineering College- Vinoth Rajendran and Balan Premkumar won the first place in the Synopsys India Custom Design Contest, 2015.

This contest gives students the opportunity to showcase their talent in electronic design.

The participant teams were judged on their designs’ functionality, efficiency and area, and on the teams’ ability to complete the design within the specified time frame.

Teams selected to compete in the contest received a free 3-day training workshop hosted by Synopsys. Students used Synopsys tools and kits to design a complete schematic, run simulations and create a DRC/LVS clean layout of a latched comparator, a basic element in analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).

In addition to being challenged with a more complex design, this year’s competitors used a 32/28-nanometer process design kit (PDK), giving them experience designing at a more advanced technology node.

“With India’s growing number of IC design houses, it is more important than ever for the industry to have a well-trained engineering workforce ready to take on advanced IC designs,” said Uno Nellore, manager in Technical Support and Training at Synopsys India. “By making our broad range of solutions accessible to universities and supporting hands-on programs like the Synopsys India Custom Design Contest, we are helping create a pool of well-trained engineers with industry-ready skills.”
