austriamicrosystems High-Voltage CMOS Technical Seminar with MunEDA/ChipMD at FSA 2005 in San Jose


San Jose, USA - Tuesday, October 04th, 2005

austriamicrosystems organised at FSA 2005 conference in San Jose a High-Voltage CMOS Technical Seminar at FSA Conference as introduction to austriamicrosystems' High-Voltage CMOS Processes and to the DFM-enhanced High-Voltage Designflow. austriamicrosystems' High-Voltage CMOS process is a new generation advanced analog and mixed-signal technology ideally suited for a wide variety of applications; power management, motor control, printer head drivers, DC/DC converters, switched power supplies, LCD drivers and backlight controllers, to name a few. Designing High-Voltage products using austriamicrosystems DFM design flow, ensures optimization towards yield and robustness of the design. austriamicrosystems' "Full Service Foundry" philosophy is to work with its customers to offer an optimal solution for first time right silicon including extended design support services. As part of this service austriamicrosystems announced a complimentary half day High-Voltage Workshop with the focus on DFM. ChipMD-MunEDA, one of the leading provider of DFM-DFY EDA software, was presenting the newest version of its design analysis and yield optimization tool WiCkeD-DesignMD. During this Seminar there was the opportunity to discuss many aspects of the High-Voltage technology and design techniques with experienced users of this new generation process.

The seminar focused on current best practices for implementing High-Voltage designs from specification to working silicon. austriamicrosystems' technology roadmap was presented and the 0.35?m High-Voltage CMOS process was described with cross sections and SEM micrographs. 0.35?m High-Voltage products, currently in manufacturing, were shown with a focus on demonstrating the integration and performance capability of the technology. austriamicrosystems DFM-enhanced reference High-Voltage design flow was presented, which utilizes specific analog/High-Voltage DFM tools such as design and layout verification of circuit robustness, yield centering, parasitic simulation or safe operating area check. A presentation of MunEDA´s DFM-tool WiCkeD-DesignMD concluded the seminar. MunEDA, one of the leading provider of DFM-DFY EDA software, presented the newest version of its design analysis and yield optimization tool WiCkeD-DesignMD on austriamicrosystems' High-Voltage process.
