PCE is hosting a One Day Workshop on “eSim, a First Course in the IoT Series” for Teachers on Saturday, 21st September, 2019. The workshop will be conducted by IIT Bombay, through a remote centre at MES Pillai College of Engineering, New Panvel (Remote Centre ID: 1100).

It is now proposed to offer the highly effective Spoken Tutorial based ICT training to a large number of teachers, across the country, through the T10KT methodology, with IoT series training being taken up next. The first workshop in the IoT series will be on eSim. eSim is a Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) EDA tool for circuit design, simulation and PCB design. It is an integrated tool built using FLOSS such as KiCad and Ngspice. eSim is released under GPL. eSim offers similar capabilities and ease of use as any equivalent proprietary software for schematic creation, simulation and PCB design, without having to pay a huge amount of money to procure licenses. Hence it can be an affordable alternative to educational institutions and SMEs. It can serve as an alternative to commercially available/ licensed software tools like OrCAD, Xpedition and HSPICE.

Every participant has to pay Rs. 200/- as the course fee to IIT Bombay at the time of online registration. This includes the cost of the circuit on hardware, which the participants take with them after the workshop. On the day of the workshop, i.e. on 21st September 2019, they have to pay Rs. 300/- to the Remote Centre that they would be attending, to defray the cost of organizing the workshop, lunch and coffee/tea.The last date of registration is 25th August, 2019, 12.30 p.m.
