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。

In an ever competitive market place design teams are often faced with the challenge of providing differentiated products by achieving market leading power performance and area (PPA) targets to drive future.

The Benefits of a Physical Design Flow & Methodology

Physical Implementation Apr 1, 2016 9:44:13 AM
 

INTRODUCTION

A key element in both the technical success and final cost of an RTL2GDSII engagement is the quality of the design methodology & flow that is used. Engineering processes that are reliable and repeatable.

Physical Design - Package Substrate Simulations at Advanced Nodes

Physical Implementation Feb 26, 2016 1:17:02 PM

Why is there a Need for This?

Quite simply, if you don't get this right you could be looking at a partial, or complete failure of the chip to function. And this will cost time and money to go and find the problem and to.
