IC Layout Symmetry Challenges

IC Layout Symmetry Challenges
by Daniel Payne on 08-29-2022 at 10:00 am

1D symmetry

Many types of designs, including analog designs, MEMs, and image sensors, require electrically matched configurations. This symmetry has a huge impact on the robustness of the design across process variations, and its performance. Having an electrically matched layout basically means having a symmetric layout. To check … Read More

NEC Plant Livingston

In 1991, I arrived in Glasgow to become a lecturer in Glasgow University, attracted by the Silicon Glen – the heart of semiconductor manufacturing in Europe. Here are few facts:

  • The larges semiconductor plant in Europe at that time was the NEC DRAM manufacturing site in Livingstone. When I visited the plant, I was mesmerized

MEMS Digital Qualification – Predicting Yield During Initial Design

MEMS Digital Qualification – Predicting Yield During Initial Design
by Admin on 05-03-2021 at 2:51 pm

Overview

In MEMS and semiconductor design, 20% of the upstream design decisions affect 80% of the downstream foundry processing, packaging, assembly, and system-level performance and yield. Device designers are seldom able to consider the implications of their design decisions on system-level robustness because the tools… Read More

Screen Shot 2020 06 12 at 8.46.22 AM

A little over a month ago, I wrote about the substantial support that Silicon Catalyst and Arm were providing for chip startups. There have been many incubators for technology companies over the years. These organizations typically provide office space, some basic infrastructure, advisory help and sometimes access to seed … Read More


Mentor-Tanner Illuminate MEMS Sensing, Fusion

Mentor-Tanner Illuminate MEMS Sensing, Fusion
by Bernard Murphy on 08-14-2019 at 6:00 am

I enjoy learning and writing about new technologies closely connected to our personal and working lives (the kind you could explain to your Mom or a neighbor). So naturally I’m interested in AI, communication and security as applied to the home automation, transportation, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, industry and so… Read More
