SMIC at MUGM MunEDA User Group Meeting 2015

“We faced large challenges in our latest technologies regarding process drifts and differences between foundries. We required a new method to predict the model parameter variations which can reflect the real silicon performance. For this reason we used WiCkeD’s sensitivity analysis and screening tools to analyse critical model parameters and fit them with deterministic nominal optimization. This delivered definitely a good basis for sizing and design centering for our circuit designers.”
