calibrating achievable design c a d theme
Calibrating Achievable Design (C.A.D.) Theme
  • This Theme solves Design Technology productivity gaps
  • Specification Gap
    • What will be the critical design problem? = FOCUS
    • GSRC Technology Extrapolation (GTX) System and “Living ITRS”http://vlsicad.ucsd.edu/GTX
  • Development and Delivery Gap
    • How to deploy DT better and faster? = TTM, QOR
    • GSRC Bookshelf for CAD-IP Reusehttp://vlsicad.eecs.umich.edu/BK
  • Measurement and Improvement Gap
    • Did envelope of achievable design grow? = METRICS
    • GSRC METRICS System for Design Process Optimizationhttp://vlsicad.ucsd.edu/METRICS
other roles of the c a d theme
Other Roles of the C.A.D. Theme
  • Identify best opportunities for “sharing of red bricks” between EDA and other semiconductor supplier industries
    • GTX studies + Manufacturing Calibration: Is low-k worth the development cost? What is the best interconnect process architecture for 65nm? What FEOL and BEOL variabilities can designers tolerate? What is the most cost-effective memory-logic integration?
  • Repository of best known methods, models, metrics
    • Connects applications and drivers (e.g., ITRS MPU, SOC) to technology roadmap
    • Connects algorithm (e.g., Fabrics) and design technology (e.g., Power-Energy) within GSRC and to designs, interconnects, devices, and materials (= other FRCs)
  • Agent of culture change
    • Measurement & characterization of EDA
    • Open-source CAD-IP; vertical benchmarking
    • New vectors: e.g., reusable curriculum IP for VLSI, VLSI design, VLSI design technology education
