T5: State-of-the-Art Methodologies for Modeling, Design, Simulation and Debug of Analog/Mixed-Signal Circuits
Half day, 10:00
The demand for low-power SoCs in mobile consumer electronics is a main driver for CMOS scaling. For digital designs, the adoption of advanced CMOS process technologies offers clear power, performance, area, and cost (PPAC) benefits. However, porting analog/mixed-signal circuits to the latest process node only provides marginal PPAC benefits, and it comes at the expense of increased complexity and development time. Feature scaling translates to larger wire RC product, exacerbated layout-dependent effects, and reliability challenges. The analog/mixed-signal design space has gradually shifted from device-centric to interconnect-centric. In this workshop we will present the latest methodologies for modeling, design, simulation and debug of analog/mixed circuits. These methodologies lead to improved process portability, design and verification.
