Submission Deadline: September 20, 2012
With the aggressive scaling of advanced IC technologies, today's analog and mixed-signal (AMS) circuits have become extremely complex. As circuit designers have adopted a number of non-traditional methodologies (e.g., adaptive self-healing, etc) to address the design challenges associated with technology scaling (e.g., reduced voltage headroom, increased process variation, etc), the corresponding digital-analog interactions have become increasingly difficult to verify. These recent trends of AMS circuits have brought up enormous new challenges and opportunities for AMS CAD. The purpose of this workshop is to report recent advances on AMS CAD and, more importantly, motivate new research topics and directions in this area.
Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
* Behavioral and performance modeling at circuit & system levels
* Analog and mixed-signal simulation and verification
* AMS self-healing and post-silicon tuning
* AMS circuit optimization and design space exploration
* PVT variations and reliability for AMS circuits
* AMS testing and diagnosis
Posters that address any of the aforementioned topics are invited. Posters addressing AMS design issues outside of these areas will also be of great interest to the workshop. They will be considered equally relevant in review process. The workshop will NOT publish official proceedings including all posters.
Poster Submission Instructions
To present a poster at the workshop, please submit an abstract to Dr. Jun Tao (email@example.com ) via email. Your submission must include the following information: (1) poster title, (2) author names and affiliations, and (3) abstract (up to one page). To be considered in the review process, your abstract must be submitted by September 20, 2012. Notification of acceptance will be sent to you on October 1, 2012.
