  • Power Noise Sign-off at #53DAC

    When I hear the company name of ANSYS the first EDA tool category that comes to mind is power noise sign-off. Going to DAC is a great way to find out what's new with EDA, IP and foundries. There are three places that you can find ANSYS at DAC this year:

    • ANSYS booth #1449
    • Samsung booth #607
    • TSMC booth #1933

    Chip and package designers have several pertinent issues that ANSYS experts can talk about:

    1. Does my design meet power and performance goals?
    2. Will my design have any electromigration reliability concerns?
    3. Is my design protected against ESD events?
    4. How does the package effect the power delivery network on chip?
    5. At the system level is my design EMI compliant?


    Industry Workshops
    Semiconductor customers are going to talk about four different design and reliability topics and how they used ANSYS tools to both simulate and optimize their designs. You do have to request participation for these four workshops that each run for two hours:

    Where do you get your semiconductor related information from?-w1-industry-trends-min-jpg

    Industry Trends on Low Power RTL Design and Analysis



    In-design Optimization for Accelerated Design Closure


    Chip-Package-System Simulation for Power, Signal and Thermal


    Reliability Challenges for Advanced SoC and IP Designs

    Best Practices Seminars
    There are seven seminar topics to choose from at the ANSYS booth and these are one hour time slots:
    • Ensuring Silicon Success on Sub 16nm Ultra-Large SoCs
    • Reliability Analysis for Next Generation Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging
    • Ensuring ESD Robustness for IPs and SoCs
    • Accurate On-die Modeling Needs for System Level PI, SI & Thermal Needs
    • Optimizing Die-size Using In-design Analysis
    • Power-Noise and Reliability for Analog & Mixed Signal IPs
    • Six Steps to Lower Power RTL Design

    DAC Designer Track
    There are some 25 sessions in the DAC Designer Track where ANSYS tools are discussed in poster sessions, reuse and reliability, power management and low power IP.

    Industry Focus
    If you are in the automotive, IoT or Mobile industries then plan on learning more about reliability, magnetics, mechanical and thermal simulations are used in the booth theatre. These are open to all DAC attendees, so no registration is required.

    Summary
    ANSYS has a lot going on at DAC this year for chip and package engineers, and I hope to meet up with Vic Kulkarni, a Sr. VP & GM of the semiconductor business unit.
