IBM, Infineon, TUM and MunEDA will present Special Session

Munich, Germany - Tuesday, December 06th, 2005

IBM, Infineon, TUM and MunEDA will present Special Session DFM/DFY Design for Manufacturability and Yield at DATE 2006 in Munich at March 06-10, 2006 - influence of process variations and increased defect sensitivity in digital, analog and mixed-signal circuit design. The session will be organized and moderated by Dr. Markus Bühler, IBM Deutschland Entwicklung GmbH, Germany and Andreas Ripp, MunEDA GmbH, Germany.

Speakers and Talks of the Session will be:
  • Dr. Markus Bühler and Dr. Juergen Koehl from IBM Deutschland Entwicklung GmbH, Germany, J. Bickford and J. Hibbeler from IBM Inc., Burlington, USA about the topic "VLSI Design for Yield - introduction into yield challenges and concepts in the digital area"
  • Prof. Dr. Ulf Schlichtmann, Technische Universität Muenchen, Germany about the topic "Statistical Design for Digital Circuits: Statistical Static Timing Analysis (SSTA)"
  • Dr. Michael Pronath, MunEDA GmbH, Germany about the topic "Design for Yield DFY concepts for analog and mixed-signal circuits"
  • Dr. Ralf Sommer, Infineon Technologies AG, Germany about the topic "Aspects of a seamless industrial designflow integration concept of DFM/DFY"

The special session is covering new methodologies and their industrial applications for Design for Manufacturability and Yield DFM/DFY. These innovative methodologies are bringing together domains that co-existed mostly separated until now - circuit design, physical design and manufacturing process. The session therefore presents seamless DFM/DFY concepts realized for the design of digital, analog, and mixed-signal circuits.
