PathFinder™, the Industry’s First Full-chip ESD Physical Integrity Solution

PathFinder, the industry’s first comprehensive electro-static discharge (ESD) integrity solution addresses the increasing reliability challenges faced by nanometer designs. It is a layout based tool with full-chip capacity and SPICE-like accuracy. Based on proprietary modeling, extraction, and simulation technologies, PathFinder enables designers to perform early prototyping, circuit optimization, and full-chip signoff. It helps designers identify the most vulnerable area of the design, meet ESD guidelines, and improve product yield.

Power Methodology from RTL Design to Chip-Package Sign-off 


In this full-day multi-track technology seminar, Apache Design Solutions, along with industry leaders, will share proven methodologies for addressing the most critical design challenges faced by engineers today – power and noise management for electronic designs.

Presentations include technology roadmap for 28nm processes and beyond, advanced reliability solutions, and 3D-IC design impact on power, signal, and thermal integrity. In addition, in-depth technical discussions will offer two key requirements for design methodology – achieving ultra-low power design targets while maintaining design integrity, and meeting system cost and performance needs through integrated chip-package-system design flow.
