If you an African institution, we can help you setup a world class microelectronics chip design lab. We will be using Cadence CAD platform under Europractice.  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. 

To understand how to make a chip, read Integrated Circuit Design posted in our non-profit arm, African Institution of Technology.
