If an integrated circuit design is to meet the need for high-quality/low-risk implementation, the need for formal communication among the participants in the design process is obviously necessary. When design engineers, design managers and mask shop engineers are at multiple sites--each team and each site working within their own schedule constraints--moving communication online is a must.
Online communication lets system-on-chip integrators do their jobs in parallel to intellectual property design and software development, and in complete awareness of the design-for-mask-manufacturing (DFFM) constraints imposed by the next engineering steps.
