IC Design: 从28纳米转向16/14纳米工艺对物理实现流程的影响

Physical Implementation Aug 30, 2016 4:35:41 PM

简介

据咨询公司Gartner的报告,对于14纳米的芯片,其集成电路(IC)的平均设计成本约为8000万美元;而对于28纳米的平面型器件,其集成电路的平均设计成本则为3000万美元。尽管许多厂商仍停留在28纳米的水平上,但那些巨头们已经在转向尺寸更小的技术节点,而占据领先地位的研发团队正在力求攻克7纳米的水平。在本博客中,我们将一睹设计师从28纳米转向16/14纳米技术节点时面临的真实情况和挑战,以及这些情况和挑战对物理实现流程的影响。
