MEDINA-VAZQUEZ, Agustín Santiago et al. A low-cost methodology for implementing electronics integrated circuit, an application example. Ing. invest. y tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.3, e029.  Epub Oct 15, 2019. ISSN 1405-7743.

In the Mexican national industry, large quantities of electronic devices are imported for manufacturing companies, including integrated circuits. Since these devices are designed in other countries, opportunities for participation in the industrial sector are lost in Mexico. In this document, a methodology is presented to design integrated circuits with low-cost tools in order to promote interest in the area, even with limited economic resources. As a case of success, it shows the design of a correlator circuit in a CMOS manufacturing technology. The correlator was designed to provide a digital output and an analogue output (mixed signal circuit). In this work, a chip development model known as "fabless" (without factory) is followed and the obtained prototypes were successfully tested in the laboratory.

Keywords : Integrated circuits; Mexico; Latin America; design; low-cost; fabless; academy; correlator.
