At 7nm and beyond, the cost and time to develop IP is very high. To gain a suitable return, it's critical to have an efficient design methodology that produces a portfolio of attractive solutions in many process variants, metal stacks, Vt selections, and even completely different foundries. TCI employs a range of fascinating techniques, from building robust circuits, to using proprietary extensions of CAD tools to creating designs and deliverables from one, universal database. In this presentation John will explain the engineering behind a highly automated CAD flow that enables TCI to maximize IP consistency, quality and reuse.
John Maneatis is TCI's co-founder, President, and Chief Technologist. He holds a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. John has almost 30 years of experience in analog and digital circuit design and is world renowned for his work in the area of Phase-Locked Loop design. He has given multiple authoritative presentations at the IEEE ISSCC and regularly presents at industry trade shows on topics of analog design, circuit simulation and CAD development.
