Open Source Utilized Silicon Initiatives

OpenSUSI, non-profit organization

Supported by AIST Solutions Co.

Our perspective


Encouraging diverse industry sectors to leverage semiconductor advancements by establishing realistic design and manufacturing platforms.


We believe that open-source EDA tools and the Open Source Silicon ecosystem can contribute to the competitiveness, innovation, education, and cyber resilience of the semiconductor industry and that the  OSS has not only economic benefits but also social benefits that extend throughout the industry.


OpenSUSI is established to provide an environment for the industry that is long-tail chip users to compete with dedicated semiconductors by Japanese domestic semiconductor assets (chip manufacturing capacity) into a platform that lowers the barriers to entry for original chip design.
