Multiphysics design

According to DARPA the fraction of total power consumed in semiconductors for I/O purposes as been growing rapidly and is creating an I/O power bottleneck. It has reached the point where it needs to be addressed with new technologies and approaches. Interestingly, while the energy density, as measured by pJ/bit for short reach… Read More

Webinar: Addressing Multiphysics Challenges in 7nm FinFET Designs
by Daniel Nenni on 03-12-2019 at 7:00 am

EDA is big on growth through acquisition, being acquired many times throughout my career I know this by experience. In fact, we have a wiki that tracks EDA Mergers and Acquisitions and it is the most viewed wiki on SemiWiki.com with 101,918 views thus far.

In March of 2017 ANSYS acquired CLK Design Automation which did timing variation… Read More


Big Data and Power Integrity: Drilling Down

Big Data and Power Integrity: Drilling Down
by Bernard Murphy on 08-21-2017 at 7:00 am

I’ve written before about how Ansys applies big data analytics and elastic compute in support of power integrity and other types of analysis. A good example of the need follows this reasoning: Advanced designs today require advanced semiconductor processes – 16nm and below. Designs at these processes run at low voltages, much… Read More


Webinar: Ansys on Multi-Physics PDN Optimization for 16/7nm

Webinar: Ansys on Multi-Physics PDN Optimization for 16/7nm
by Bernard Murphy on 07-22-2017 at 12:00 pm

On the off-chance you missed my previous pieces on this topic, at these dimensions conventional margin-based analysis becomes unreasonably pessimistic and it is necessary to analyze multiple dimensions together. People who build aircraft engines, turbines and other complex systems have known this for quite a long time. You… Read More


Rebooting EDA

Rebooting EDA
by Bernard Murphy on 05-23-2016 at 7:00 am

In the 35 years since commercial EDA went mainstream a lot of advances have been made but the fundamental architecture and even the philosophy of tooling have really not advanced at all. Tools are designed around individual tasks – analysis and optimization within a specific domain – under the assumption that variability within… Read More
