MPW1 is Alive
Yes! All the designs I submitted to MPW1 are working:
- ✅ 7 segment display
- ✅ TPM2137 CTF
- ✅ WS2812 led driver
- ✅ VGA clock
- ✅ Multiplexor
I put together a video to demonstrate them all:
The 4 other designs that were part of this submission were made by friends who I’ve now sent samples to. It’s looking likely that everyone’s designs will work.

Sylvain ’tnt’ Munaut is working on a more in-depth video describing his methodology, so subscribe to his youtube channel to learn more.
Q3K made the TPM2137 CTF for Dragon Sector. I solved it with formal verification tools and taped it out on MPW1. My challenge to reverse engineer the password from the GDS was quickly completed by Geo, who put up their solution here: https://github.com/georgerennie/Matt_Venn_q3k_TPM2137_Solution
Thanks to Olivier over at Texplained for the scans. Check them out for IC reverse engineering and data extraction, as well as training.
