Semiconductors are the bedrock of our technological achievements and their significance is poised to grow even further in the future. With an escalating demand for production and design in Europe, Munich emerges as a promising hub for pioneering breakthrough developments.

On one hand, new systems continue to push the boundaries of what is possible, while on the other hand, chip design is progressively evolving into a highly intricate process. This dynamic landscape presents ample opportunities for innovation. The advent of the new and open standard instruction set architecture, RISC-V, has significantly lowered the barriers to entry for creating your own System-on-a-Chip (SoC). As we forge ahead in chip design innovation, the need for enhanced tools becomes even more pronounced.

Join us in harnessing the power of your research to establish a thriving start-up, or if you require support in bringing your Silicon idea to fruition.
