CMC Basecamp™

CMC Basecamp™ courses introduce engineers and scientists to advanced technologies, faster. These courses provide a unique combination of theory and lab work through a design/fabrication/test cycle of your very own microchip. 

Learn to design hardware using the advanced technologies that will power tomorrow’s 5G communications, artificial Intelligence, edge computing, quantum computing, and photonics-based sensors and systems.

CMC Basecamp

CMC Basecamp is a suite of training courses which streamline researcher’s access to advanced technologies.

CMC Basecamp courses typically include

  • An intensive 2 to 3 weeks of tutorials, lectures, and workshops with tools for design and simulation

  • CAD tool access for completion of the design (restrictions apply)

  • Fabrication of the design using Multi-Project Wafer services offered by CMC

  • Support for Testing (options vary with course)
