Democratizing Hardware Design
The OpenROAD project attacks the barriers of Cost, Expertise and Uncertainty (i.e., Risk) that block the feasibility of hardware design in advanced technologies.
DARPA is reimagining U.S. Electronics
OpenROAD is centered on digital SOC layout generation ("RTL-to-GDSII"), and is part of the broader DARPA IDEA program and Electronics Resurgence Initiative which seek to transform the design of hardware systems.
24 Hours, No Humans in the Loop
OpenROAD aims to develop tools that adapt, self-tune, and never get stuck unexpectedly.

Problem: Hardware design requires too much effort, cost and time.
Challenge: $$$ costs and “expertise gap” block system designers’ access to advanced technology.
Objective: We want to enable no-humans, 24-hour design and catalyze open source EDA.
**Important Flow and Platform Information:
Foundations and Realization of Open, Accessible Design
Prof. Kahng and the OpenROAD team are aiming to develop open-source tools that achieve autonomous, 24-hour layout implementation.
