130 nm technology
130 nm technology

  • Foundry services & Technology technical support provided by CERN.

CMOS 8RF-DM

Low cost technology for

Analog & RF designs

  • Mainstream technology is CMOS8RF-DM

    • Full support: CERN compiled Mixed-Signal design kit

  • Secondary stream is CMOS8RF-LM

    • Full support for in-house on-going projects: CERN compiled Mixed-Signal design kit

    • not recommended for new designs

CMOS 8RF-LM

Low cost technology for

Large Digital designs

PDK

Standard cell libraries

  • Mixed Signal Kit V1.8

    • Based on foundry PDK V1.8.0.1

    • Released middle this year - 11/6/2011

    • Foundry Standard cell and IO pad libraries

    • Versions of CAE Tools

      • Compatible with the “Europractice” 2011 distribution.

      • Open Access database.

    • Bug fixes and Important updates.

      • Original IBM PDK 1.7.0.x had several tools compatibility problems

    • Support for LINUX Platform

      • Qualified on RHEL4 & RHEL5

CAE Tools

Mixed Signal Design

Kit

  • New patch release based on IBM PDK 1.8.0.4 to be available soon

  • Two design kits available:

    • CMOS8RF-DM (3-2-3 BEOL)

    • CMOS8RF-LM (6-2 BEOL)

Cmos8rf mixed signal remarks
CMOS8RF Mixed Signal - remarks

  • Rules

    • Keep given major release as long as possible, to stabilize design process of many project teams

    • However, if new original PDK contains critical updates, new Mixed Signal PDK major release is inevitable

  • Certification process

    • Depending on changes in original new PDK adaptation to Mixed Signal PDK

      • Is done in-house (some time is needed)

      • Development work subcontracted to Cadence,VCAD design services(more time needed! Ex. 2 months)

      • Close collaboration of CERN - VCAD – IBM

  • Original IBM PDK patches are always available on our web-site immediately after release

    • It is strongly recommended to not apply these to Mixed Signal PDK – wait for patch release from CERN

Design kit distribution
Design Kit Distribution

No change in rules

  • The Mixed Signal Design kit is available to collaborating institutes.

    • Distributed to 28 Institutes and Universities

    • No access fees required.

    • Pay-per-use scheme.

      • A 7% fee is applied on the fabrication cost (prototyping, production).

      • This fee covers part of the design kit maintenance costs.

  • For New Users

    • To acquire the CMOS8RF Mixed Signal Design Kit

    • Contact [email protected] or [email protected]

    • Establish a CDA with foundry (if not already in place).

    • Granted access to the CERN ASIC support web site.

Cmos8rf digital libraries
CMOS8RF digital libraries

  • Currently Available

    • Regular-Vt core cells

    • Short-IO Inline, wirebond, Pads

  • Future Plans – driven by user demand

    • Regular-Vt core cells at lower supply voltages (1.0 V, 0.8 V)

    • High-Vt core cells, for low power designs.

    • “Compact layout” core cells.

    • Rad-Tolerant cells: ex. DICE

  • Work items

    • Layout design

    • Library characterization

    • Design kit integration

    • Digital back-end flow adaptation
