At 65 nanometers
and beyond, substantial leakage current can flow through unintentional transistor circuit paths known as 'sneaky paths.
The correct choice of library cells can have a significant effect on production yields at 90 nanometers
and below," said Brani Buric, senior director of platform product marketing and business development for Virage Logic.
People haven't been thinking in terms of measurements on this nanometer
scale before because it hasn't been possible.
The new system exceeds the current throughput demands of the largest designs from our leading-edge customers, and delivers the performance scalability required to meet their future demands down to 45 nanometers
And instead of ferritin, the researchers attached smaller iridium clusters to the molecules' ends, which enabled them to resolve distances as small as 2 nanometers
We collaborated closely with Cadence to meet the complex requirements that designers are facing at 65 nanometers
, which include power management, chip and package co-design, and manufacturing.
specializing in nanometer
IC power reduction, today announced two new software products -- Power Optimize Gold (TM) and Power Plan Gold(TM) -- that work with existing place & route flows from Cadence Design Systems, Synopsys and Magma.
With 15 designs started at 90 nanometers
to date, and two 65-nanometer
designs underway, S3 is at the leading edge of system IC design in an industry now seeing volume ramp-up at the 90-nanometer
As we move to 90 nanometers
, accurate modeling of new process effects becomes critical to enabling our customers to better predict silicon performance and avoid time-consuming and costly re-spins," said Matthew Graf, manager of Foundry Design Automation of IBM's System and Technology Group.
At 90 nanometers
and below, leakage current becomes a significant barrier to success.
Traditional ATPG-based diagnostics tools are typically less than 40 percent accurate at 130 nanometers
and do not support volume operation, dynamic diagnostics, customizable fault modeling, or vectors generated by other ATPG tools.
Storage (NNOM) announced today that it has successfully completed a merger with the private Nanometer
Storage Corporation (Delaware) and will remain the controlling entity.
