Abstract: As technology node gets closer to the Moore’s limit, a large amount of chip fabrication challenges are translated to physical design challenges. They are quickly becoming the focus of both EDA vendors and academic researches. However, there is always a gap among chip designers, EDA tools and research articles.
This lecture will give an overall introduction on the challenges in current advanced node from a chip designer’s perspective. Meanwhile, it will also show the current status of the major industry EDA vendors and propose topics to the academic students.
