We submitted Tiny Tapeout 2 back in December, and last week I received the chips from Efabless.
Most first chip designs fail, but you never hear about it because the big companies keep it a secret. So we thought - why not do the world’s first public silicon bring up?
Thankfully the chips worked, and you can watch the whole stream here.
We’ve since found 1 errata, but luckily not a show stopper.
I had a lot of fun working through the datasheet and picking designs to test. Here’s a video of me showing off the following designs:
And here’s links to those designs:
We’re looking forward to getting the boards manufactured at Aisler and getting them sent out to the 165 people who submitted designs!
