Advanced DFM and AAA — Mentor and TSMC Collaborate for Success
Design-for-Manufacturing (DFM) requires a close working relationship between a foundry and its EDA partners to ensure that customers can create competitive designs with the highest possible yield. This presentation demonstrates how the partnership between TSMC and Mentor Graphics is improving performance and yield for our mutual customers working at advanced process nodes. You will learn about TSMC's Active Accuracy Assurance (AAA) initiative to improve the application of foundry process data in EDA tools, and how Mentor Graphics is engaged in AAA to deliver robust DFM solutions for designers today.
What You Will Learn
You will learn the status of DFM at TSMC and how their industry leading AAA initiative is setting the benchmark for foundry-EDA collaboration. You will also learn how to use the valuable data provided by AAA and associated EDA tools in your design environment to improve the robustness and quality of your designs. The discussion will show how Calibre can be used with flows employing any of the major design tools.
Who Should View
Designers and managers using or considering TSMC as their foundry and wanting to improve IC yield using DFM techniques.
