Everyone is a Chip Designer!
Chips are those tiny little micro circuits that exist in almost every moden electronic product from the light dimmer to the smartphone. They are called Integrated Circuits!
Semiconductor Integrated Circuits have changed our lives yet we are just scratching the surface with many new useful personal, industrial, and medical applications.
With hackCMOS project, we have simplified chip design and test efforts so that everyone can learn it, and build their own electronics projects in a whole new way. It's like assembling lego's together - except on a chip. To make is simple to use and place in your own electronic project.
If you can play with Arduino, you can "hackCMOS"!
Anyone can use the HackCMOS Arduino shield to design, tinker and make their own Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) from an open library of "bloks" we provide that cover key functions for a variety of applications, from lighting to nano drones!
The hackCMOS 1.0 Project
When we are done with hackCMOS, in April 2015, we will send our supporters the hackCMOS1.0 kit containing our first reference ASIC mounted on an Arduino shield along with an Arduino board so you can test it, play with it at your convenience.
When you purchase the hackCMOS 1.0 kit, it comes with no-cost online access to a comprehensive online design ToolBox along with a library of functional BLOKS that you can use to define, design your desired ASIC.
What You Can Do with hackCMOS 1.0
Get familiar, learn it and & Fork Your Own!
If you are a Maker, a Pro a Passionate Electronics hacker or an Educator, you can use hackCMOS to design, test your own electronics ideas with the power of Integrated Circuits.
When completed in early 2015, HackCMOS gives you everything in a box everything needed to design, verify, manufacture and validate your ASIC design in clear stages all done Online
The Gang of Hackers
Your Role in hackCMOS 1.0
We can only make hackCMOS a reality for all of us with your support, feedback, comments and expressing your wishes of what you would like to see and what would make it attractive to you.
