Product Description

CLEAR - The Open Source FPGA ASIC  

CLEAR is an Open Source FPGA ASIC delivered to you on its development board and its open source software development tools and all the ASIC design tools used to create it. That's for you to create your own - yes that's right - ASIC.

CLEAR is utilizing Caravel - the open source ASIC platform provided as a base System on Chip (SoC) provided by Efabless' chipIgnite offering.

What we will do

  1. Generate an embedded FPGA macro based on the famous OpenFPGA generator framework
  2. Integrate the eFPGA macro into Caravel which makes it an FPGA ASIC - Clear
  3. Manufacture the ASIC through chipIgnite program through SkyWater Technology
  4. Package and mount the ASIC on its development board 
  5. Test the boards before you get them along with the open source FPGA programing software
  6. You receive your board and have fun!

As part of the campaign we will show you everything we do including how to design your own ASIC with open source ASIC design software and how you can create a campaign just like this one for your own custom ASIC. All that without having to make a giant hole in your pocket for ASIC design and manufacturing.

Why GroupGets?

We would like to do something new and create an open source FPGA chip along with its carrier board and software tools. By using the GroupGets crowd purchasing platform, passionate software developers, embedded hardware developers, chip designers and makers can get this awesome and first-of-its-kind open source eFPGA. We would also like to show that the community can self-launch similar GroupGets campaigns using open source design tools to design an open source chip, to make an open source board, to build their open source smart device or product, and present it in the marketplace to gauge potential market interest.
