Nanometer Circuit Verification Forum

Nanometer Circuit Verification Forum
by Daniel Nenni on 08-29-2011 at 2:33 pm

 Verifying circuits on advanced process nodes has always been difficult, and it’s no easier with today’s nanometer CMOS processes. There’s a great paradox in nanometer circuit design and verification. Designers achieve their greatest differentiation when they implement analog, mixed-signal, RF and custom digital circuitry on a single nanometer CMOS die, running at GHz frequencies. Yet it’s these very circuits that create huge design challenges, and introduce a whole new class of verification problems that traditional approaches can’t begin to adequately address.

Fortunately there’s a group of companies bringing to market innovative solutions that focus exactly on these problems, and collaborating to hold the nanometer Circuit Verification Forum (nmCVF), on September 22[SUP]nd[/SUP] at TechMart in Santa Clara. Hosted by Berkeley Design Automation, and including technologists from selected EDA, industry and academic partners, this forum will showcase advanced nanometer circuit verification technologies and techniques. You’ll hear real circuit case studies, where these solutions have been used to verify challenging nanometer circuits, including data convertors; clock generation and recovery circuits (PLLs, DLLs); high-speed I/O, image sensors and RFCMOS ICs.

In addition to technical presentations and case studies, renowned EDA industry veteran and visionary, Jim Hogan, will give the keynote address.
