Synopsys University Symposium  

Custom IC Design & Device Modeling - Tools and Technologies 

Friday, March 7
9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The Lalit New Delhi Hotel

The Synopsys University Symposiums are for members of the academic community to get the latest information on design automation solutions, methodologies and standards. These FREE technical seminars are a resource to help accelerate innovation. Join us at this symposium to learn how you can achieve the highest value and productivity from your Synopsys tool investment.

Custom IC Design
Custom design and layout has undergone radical change in the past decade. Laborious and manual procedures are now extensively automated to help chip makers meet their time to market goals. Tools are expected to form a unified front-to-back environment for custom circuit design and layout and deliver a complete solution optimized for performance and interoperability with various design flows.

The Laker custom layout infrastructure comes with state-of-the-art features to assist designers with modern layout techniques like double patterning, match device creator, stick diagram, etc. Its controllable automation technology simplifies layout while reducing verification and debug efforts. This coupled with the Synopsys best-in-class fast spice (CustomSim) and HSPICE simulator and sign-off technologies gives Analog/Custom design engineers a unified, robust easy-to-use, full solution platform to implement any analog/mixed-signal chip.

Device Modeling
With growing device and design complexity, device-circuit co-design is becoming an increasingly important area of research. Today, devices and circuits are designed and optimized together for superior performance, yield and reliability. Synopsys TCAD tools are indispensable for device design and optimization.
