Attend this two-day Chisel Bootcamp and learn how to design hardware with a highly productive and parameterizable Scala-embedded hardware description language, Chisel, from the University of California-Berkeley experts. Registration is closed, as we have reached the maximum number of attendees that we can accommodate.
CHISEL BOOTCAMP DAY 1 - Chisel Friday 9/6/2019 9am-5:30pm
Chisel is a Scala-embedded hardware description language developed at UC Berkeley. This bootcamp will get you up to speed on Chisel and show you how to design simple hardware using Chisel.
Friday presenter: Chick Markley

CHISEL BOOTCAMP DAY 2 - RocketChip Generator Saturday 9/7/2019 9am-12pm
RocketChip Generator is an open-source RISC-V SoC generator written in Chisel and developed at UC Berkeley. This session will show you how the Chisel and RocketChip toolchains can be used to design, simulate, and deploy custom hardware. We will walk through a simple design example of a custom accelerator and how it is integrated into the RocketChip ecosystem.
Saturday Presenters: Albert Ou, Jerry Zhao, and Sagar Karandikar
The Chisel Bootcamp is hosted by Duke University Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Electrical & Computer Engineering Lisa Wu Wills, of the APEX Lab @ Duke. The goal of the APEX Lab @ Duke is to provide research scientists within and outside of the computer science/engineering discipline with systems to accelerate how they do research analysis. We want to make designing, deploying, and using custom hardware orders of magnitude simpler while demonstrating application-driven programmable hardware accelerated systems that are orders of magnitude more efficient.
