The Digital Sandbox is an infrastructure project that sustains the hands-on laboratory environment required for the Pittsburgh Digital Greenhouse Education and Training programs to function effectively. Through the Digital Sandbox, the PDG is funding a virtual SoC design support facility to support SoC design and education activities at the University of Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania State University, and Carnegie Mellon University.

This virtual SoC design support facility provides "industrial strength" hardware, software, EDA tools, workflows, and technical support staff to all three PDG member universities. This will enable Digital Sandbox student and faculty users to create real-world designs for modern semiconductor process technologies, and thus, enhance university-industry interaction and improve the quality of graduating engineers.
