MunEDA VP Andreas Ripp presents at MEDEA-DAC2007 in Grenoble May 22-24, 2007

Munich, Germany - Wednesday, May 02nd, 2007

Quality and reliability with today's very sensitive analog and mixed-signal circuits are highly influenced by environmental and operating conditions. To fully predict the influence of the whole dynamic cluster of these influence factors like temperature, stress, ageing etc. is one of the TOP challenges for designing high-performance circuits in leading edge nano technologies. New design strategies considering reliability and lifetime-yield models within a dynamic operating conditions concept are required to meet those challenges. The presentation therefore will discuss how existing predominantly static concepts of handling operating conditions during the sizing process of analog and mixed-signal circuits can be enhanced by dynamic and reliability oriented sizing methodologies using trade-off analysis of design performances and specifications.

Andreas Ripp is representing MunEDA within MEDEA-Project HONEY - Highly Optimized Design Methods for Yield and Reliability (MEDEA-Project 2A713) This Pan-European research project will last from January 1st, 2007 until December 31st, 2009. Industrial project partners are Infineon, STMicroelectronics,, MunEDA, X-Fab, Dolphin, Infiniscale, Xyalis. Institutes and Universities within HONEY are IMMS, IMEP, Technical Universitaet Munich and University Frankfurt. Both Technical Universitaet Munich and University Frankfurt are sub-contractors from MunEDA within HONEY. Main targets of HONEY is the development of methods for improving yield and reliability without affecting the silicon process.
