Reliability Analysis for Mission-Critical IC design

Reliability Analysis for Mission-Critical IC design
by Daniel Payne on 09-13-2021 at 10:00 am

reliability analysis min

Mission-critical IC design for segments like automotive, aerospace, defense, medical and 5G have more stringent reliability analysis requirements than consumer electronics, and entails running special simulations for the following concerns:

  • Electromigration analysis
  • IR drop analysis
  • MOS aging
  • High-sigma Monte Carlo

Why Optimizing 3DIC Designs Calls for a New Approach

Why Optimizing 3DIC Designs Calls for a New Approach
by Synopsys Editorial on 09-02-2021 at 10:00 am

IC design engineering 3DIC 1024x615 1

The adoption of 3DIC architectures, while not new, is enjoying a surge in popularity as product developers look to their inherent advantages in performance, cost, and the ability to combine heterogeneous technologies and nodes into a single package. As designers struggle to find ways to scale with complexity and density limitations… Read More

Back in 2020 I first learned from Synopsys about how they had engineered a better way to do optimize layouts on digital designs by using machine learning techniques, instead of relying upon manual approaches. The product was named DSO.ai, standing for Design Space Optimization, and it produced a more optimal floor-plan in less… Read More

Euclide GUI

There’s no question that chip designs are getting more complex, driven by the power, performance, and area (PPA) demands of applications like artificial intelligence (AI), automotive, and cloud computing. This complexity, of course, trickles down to the design and testbench code. When engineers can find and fix bugs before… Read More

ZeBu Empower diagram

In every chip, power is a progressive problem to be solved. Designers have long had to rely on a combination of experience and knowledge to tackle this dilemma, typically having to wait until after silicon availability to perform power analysis with realistic software workloads. However, this is too late in the game, as it becomes… Read More


Driving PPA Optimization Across the Cubic Space of 3D IC Silicon Stacks

Driving PPA Optimization Across the Cubic Space of 3D IC Silicon Stacks

Improved PPA Using 3D IC

The move to true 3D IC, monolithic 3D SOC and 3D heterogeneous integration may require one of the most major design tool architecture overhauls since IC design tools were first developed. While we have been taking steps toward 3DIC with 2.5D designs with interposers, HBM, etc., the fundamental tools and flows remain intact in many… Read More


Die-to-Die Connections Crucial for SOCs built with Chiplets

Die-to-Die Connections Crucial for SOCs built with Chiplets

die to die connections

If you ascribe to the notion that things move in circles, or concentrically, the move to die-to-die connectivity makes complete sense. Just as multi-chip modules (MCM) were the right technology decades ago to improve power, areas, performance and cost, the use of chiplets with die-to-die connections provides many advantages… Read More

Mars Perseverance Rover Features First Zoom Lens in Deep Space

On July 30, 2020, NASA launched the Mars 2020 Perseverance rover, which is scheduled to land today. Perseverance has been deployed to Mars with a new mission: to search for evidence of past life and collect samples that will eventually be brought back to Earth by future missions.
