Will 2009 will be better than 2008 for pdk group workload

Will 2009 will be better than 2008 for PDK group workload?

  • More people for Kit group

    • 2009 Kit dev will have Josh, Shawn, John, Norm, Jianjun, Joe.

      • Compared with 2008 team: Josh, Shawn, Randy, John (to Sept), Joe (90% distribution work)

      • Compared with COM2 SiGe team: Josh, Shawn, John, Randy, Nan, Blane, releasing full design kit in 12 weeks.

  • Same user groups and similar design methodology

    • 2008: start of usage of 40nmG by NSPG teams

    • 2008: back-annotation with Calibre and QRC flow.

  • Start of OA design kits

    • Medium risk, because smooth try out of OA version of COM2 SiGe

  • Start of 28nm technology

    • Low risk in 1H09, because usage is limited, for preliminary studies

  • Overall, YES.

Will 2009 will be better than 2008 for pdv group workload

Will 2009 will be better than 2008 for PDV group workload?

  • Backfilled positions will begin meaningful contributions in 1Q09

    • Sunil and Lohitha will provide development and support resources that were only available for less than 50% of 2008

  • “Perfect Storm” of events in 2008 won’t happen in 2009

    • New users in xAgere kits, new users in xLSI kits -- increased support efforts

    • Developers new to the xLSI kits – slow resolution of issues

    • Extensive IP migration support efforts between the “x” kits – extra work

    • New toolsets -- extensive development effort

    • Developers learning new toolset – slower development

    • Adoption of dual vendor flow problematic – resource intensive debug/support

    • Lack of IT standards -- increased support efforts

  • There will still be challenges

    • Closure on dual vendor flow

    • OA adoption

    • Continue to drive IT standards

    • Total group HDCT @ 8 – still short of “ideal” 9 HDCT last realized in 2006 (perf review HDCT was 11 in 2004, 11 in 2005 and 7 in 2006)

28nm requirements in 1q09

28nm requirements in 1Q09

  • Details in back-up slides

  • For March release

  • Needed and planned

    • PDK framework using IC 6.1.3

    • Layer and techfiles

    • MOS symbols, schematic views, netlisting

    • Verisub support of TSMC DRC and LVS decks

  • Nice-to-have and planned

    • MOS pcells

Proposed work plan for 1h09

Proposed work plan for 1H09

  • Proposed plan

    • Requested CSC items: use “worst-case-scenario”, not actual commitments.

    • 28nm 1Q09 requirements delivered in March release

    • COM3 SiGe full PDK still targeted for June 15 release

      • PDK Framework and diode only for 3/23 release

      • CSC work for most components starting March.

      • Calibre and QRC flow to enable the checks developed.

  • Insert final Excel sheet “28nm_first” here.

28nm for technology evaluation group

28nm for Technology Evaluation Group

  • For April tape-out

    • Testers, most are MOS

    • Few circuits, e.g. bandgap

  • In order of priority

    • Tech files and layers

    • LVS and DRC

      • Need to have interface from LSI environment (PDK) to TSMC tech files

      • Verisub would help but not necessary

    • MOS front-end

      • Schematic symbol for MOS

      • Pcell would be nice.

      • Manually edit netlist for the ckt simulation

        • ckt contains more than just MOS, anyway.

28nm for standard cell library group

28nm for Standard Cell Library group

  • For technology benchmarking purpose not early tape-out. Want to get results before TSMC’s June 2009

    • End of March will get official LSI decision on TSMC bulk vs. IBM SOI.

    • Already starting to do whole flow with piecing in TSMC information

    • Will take pieces of what we can provide to reduce own work.

  • In order of priority

    • IC 6.1 PDK framework within the ICDS / Sync environment

    • Schematic view and netlist (for LVS) of MOS

      • MOS alone would be 80% of needs. Diodes are also used.

    • Can use TSMC decks directly for back-end, but verisub support would be good.

    • ?MOS pcells? Question if same pcell can be used effectively for both Analog design and cell library design

      • Note, flow is schematic driven, but has not used the custom analog PDK pcell in the past.
