Fasmicro Helps Schools Setup VLSI Labs Across Africa

If you an African institution, Fasmicro is available to help you setup a world class microelectronics chip design lab. We will be using the Cadence CAD platform under the Europractice. The fee is $10,000 per school site. This excludes cost of your hardware. We will train your students and staff on the use of Cadence and all the processes involved in chip design from schematic entry, layout, extraction and tapeout, and finally the testing of the chip when fabricated.

EUROPRACTICE is a quality brand name for European service-type projects in the Microelectronics, Microsystems and Photonics fields. The EUROPRACTICE brand name covers a wide range of FP6 and FP7 projects.

The following is our timetable for major African markets:

Nigeria – anytime

Ghana – January 2012

Kenya – February 2012

South Africa – March 2012

We ask schools and companies that want to configure and setup Europractice services and master Cadence design to contact [email protected] Upon setup, your team will be required to spend time with us to get more exposure in CAD usage. Trainings will be done via Fasmicro U.S. services.
