In-design DRC is a technique that frees up engineers from many of the challenges of delivering AMS design under ever more complex design rules.
DVCon China general chair Andy Liu discusses Accellera’s new addition to its design and verification conference series (简体中文).
How ST Microelectronics uses Synopsys' VCS AMS, combining VCS functional verification and CustomSim, to verify one of its mixed-signal designs
Mixed-signal chip designer Semtech on using Lynx Design System to manage multi-corner multi-mode sign-off when you've got 306 scenarios to check.
CSR used a customized approach to automated dummy fill layout for AMS to address layer density and device matching issues in standard flows aimed at digital SoCs.
The 28nm process node has once more raised the design bar in terms of the DFM checks needed to realize a design. This is particularly true for analog and mixed-signal engineering, where rules that could once be maintained manually now need to be addressed in a more integrated, automated, and timely way. The article explores [...]
Lew Counts It is not unusual for analog circuit designers to exhibit a wistful air of ‘been there, done that’, even if you would never catch them wearing the t-shirt. That goes double for Lewis Counts, vice president of analog technology at Analog Devices and a fellow with the sector giant. “There are things they’re […]
