With multiple system design scenarios such as system-in-package, system-on-chip, mixed-signal design integration, hybrid substrates, 3D integrated ICs, and multicore multiprocessors, the pressure on robust package electrical design is increasing exponentially. There is a significant need for crosstalk control, co-simulation, and incremental design enhancement in a variety of design methodologies while ensuring accurate simulation of full-wave electromagnetic effects. At the same time, the need to efficiently and accurately analyze and optimize the chip-package-board environment is critical for developing cost-efficient systems. This panel brings together experts in design and simulation of ICs and packages to discuss the interactions between the two domains and the needed enhancement in electronic design automation solutions.
WHAT: Package Extraction, Modeling, and Simulation in IC- Packaging-Board Design WHERE: DesignCon 2008, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California WHEN: Wednesday, February 6, 2008, 3:45 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. WHO: Chair: Dr. Vikram Jandhyala, CEO & Founder, Physware, Inc. Dr. Bruce Archambeault, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Dr. Rajen Murugan, Signal Integrity Engineer, Texas Instruments Dr. Judy Priest, Principal Engineer and SI Manager, Cisco Systems Dr. Kaladhar Radhakrishnan, Manager, Power Delivery Team, Intel Corporation Dr. Andrew Yang, Co-Founder & CEO, Apache Design Solutions
In addition, Dr. Jandhyala will also conduct a tutorial session at the conference titled "Computational Electromagnetics: From Maxwell's Equations to Signal Integrity and System Design." This tutorial focuses on the fundamentals of Maxwell's equation solutions, and state-of-the-art applications to signal integrity and microelectronics design.
