Department of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, Pillai HOC College of Engineering and Technology (PHCET), Rasayani in association with IETE Students Forum organized a Workshop on “eSIM- Open Source EDA Tool for Circuit Design” on Monday, 28th March, 2022.
Dr. Yogita Mistry, Associate Professor at RAIT Nerul
Lab B-404 (Graphics Lab)
Mr. Jayesh Rane
The speaker for this workshop is Dr. Yogita Mistry, Associate Professor at RAIT Nerul. eSim is a free and open-source EDA tool for circuit design, simulation, analysis, and PCB design.
eSim offers similar capabilities and ease of use as any equivalent proprietary software for schematic creation, simulation, and PCB design, without having to pay a huge amount of money to procure licenses. Hence, it can be an affordable alternative to educational institutions and SMEs. It can serve as an alternative to commercially available/licensed software tools like OrCAD, Xpedition, and HSPICE.
Following points covered in the Workshop:
- Draw circuits using KiCad
- Create a netlist and simulate using Ngspice
- Design PCB layouts and generate Gerber files
- Perform Mixed-Signal Simulation.
Total 24 student and faculty members of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering department attended the workshop.
