The Imperative of Open Sourcing Chip Manufacturing Processes

Hey all, some of us at the Taksashila Institution are working on exploring different models for open-sourcing (or providing open access to) certain elements of the semiconductor fabrication and design value chain.

We are starting out with a piece with our preliminary analysis of Process Development Kits (PDKs) and how research fabs in India could potentially emulate the Australian National Fabrication Facility, or the Canadian CMC Microsystems:

The piece is also available on GitHub here. Do let us know what you think about this and any areas that you think we should look into further.
