Session B:
Saturday, December 1st,
11:00 PM PST (7:00 AM London time).
Duration: 2 hours.

You must attend one of the scheduled workshops to activate your free early-access zCAD trial.


  • Background (PCB, SiP, SoC)
  • Heterogeneous Integration
  • zGlue Integration Platform (ZiP)
  • Features of ZiP
  • How to Design with ZiP
  • CAD for ZiP (zCAD)
  • Upcoming DevKits
  • Q&A

The workshop content will be the same for both sessions, so please feel free to attend either one.

The DIY chip revolution is just getting started, and we thank you for being a part of it!

Best Regards,

The zGlue Team

About the zCAD Workshop

Signing up for this workshop will give you exclusive access to zCAD, our chip design software that enables you to quickly and easily create your own custom chips. By attending the workshop at the scheduled time you’ll have the opportunity to learn and ask questions about zCAD with our very own CTO, and by the end you’ll be designing your own chips specific to your goals.

Product Choices



An incredibly small, ready-to-use fitness tracking fob that measures heart rate, temperature, and footsteps. Comes with 3D-printed enclosure, battery, charging cable, quickstart guide, and smartphone app.


zOrigin Dev Board

This dev board breaks out and makes easily accessible all the pins and functionality of the ZGLZ1 chip, the custom ZiP that powers the zOrigin. Includes a PMOD connector, and two electrode pads and cables for heart rate monitoring.


Five-pack of ZGLZ1BA Chips

Prototype your own projects using the same chip as used in zOrigin. Each chip is ten-by-ten, 0.8-mm-pitch BGA package measuring 8.7 mm x 9.1 mm.


zOrigin Deluxe Kit

Includes one of each of the above pledge levels: one zOrigin, one zOrigin Dev Board, and one Five-pack of ZGLZ1BA Chips.



We stack chips on demand by integrating the essential pieces of any connected things - processing, sensing, memory, and communication into one chip - giving unlimited freedom for creating things that are smaller, faster, and cheaper than what standard SoC and PCB integration technologies can offer. We help you build you next big thing, with quality, speed, and scalability.
