Novel Techniques for Improving Reliability and Manufacturability
Moderator:
Yu Cao - Arizona State Univ.
CMOS scaling has made circuit design as well as mask layout design extremely difficult. The exploration covering broad ranges of techniques, from traditional CAD algorithms to machine learning techniques is actively carried out. The first paper in this session applies a feed-forward neural network for estimating aged gate delays of standard cells in a design library. The second paper proposes to apply generative learning models, by learning the inherent distribution of a given set of layouts, to the synthesis of layout patterns and their legalization. The third paper proposes an algorithm for accurate layout pattern matching through line sweep.
