12th Integrated Circuits Design Bootcamp

January 16th – January 20th, 2023

Every day from 9 am to 7 pm
Universidad del Bío-Bío, Concepción,
Departamento de Ingeniería Eléctrica y Electrónica,
Avda. Collao 1202, Casilla 5-C, Concepción


Integrated Circuits are at the heart of innovations that are changing the way people live and work. Self-driving cars. Machines that learn. Devices are getting smarter. Communication is getting faster and faster. Everything is connected, and chips are powering the new era of digital innovation.

Rapid changes in Integrated Circuits (IC) technology and constantly shrinking nodes demand new capabilities and skills to meet the contemporary requirements for IC design.

Synopsys Chile R&D Center* and Universidad del Bío-Bío invite you, undergraduate and graduate students and academics, to participate in the 12th Integrated Circuits Design Bootcamp, a new version of the previously called Integrated Circuit Design Summer School where you will attend workshops accessing leading-edge software and plenary talks prepared to strengthen skills around the design and simulation of digital integrated circuits that are highly demanded in an increasingly more competitive and technologized market.

This bootcamp will have two parallel tracks: a digital integrated circuit design course (synthesis flow, and place and route) and an analog design course where you will work on design and implementation of small common circuit blocks like differential pair and bias circuits.

Who should attend?

Undergraduate and graduate students and academics that meet the following requirements:

Basic semiconductor electronics knowledge.
Digital Systems knowledge.
Linux user.

Get ready for an immersive learning experience.

*Synopsys Chile, opened in 2006, is one of the most important R&D centers that Synopsys Inc. has in the world and is the only one in Latin America.

**The Universidad del Bío-Bío is heir to the oldest tradition of state and public higher education in the Bío-Bío Region.
The Faculty of Engineering of the Universidad del Bío-Bío was officially founded in February 1982. The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, one of its academic units is recognized nationally and internationally for the excellence of its academics, the quality of undergraduate and graduate teaching in the field of Electrical, Electronic and Automation Engineering, in a sustained scientific productivity and an active link with the regional and national industrial environment.
