Design and Manufacturing in 2030
Greg Yeric - Arm, Ltd., Austin, TX
Looking out to 2030, our industry’s underlying technology faces some “extreme” challenges. Will a 3rd generation EUV tool making 1.2nm CMOS nanowires be worth it? What disruptive opportunities may come forward in 10 years to help? There are many options to speculate about, but in every case it remains clear that the trend that started as Design for Manufacturing, and became Design Technology Co-Optimization, will need to continue to strengthen, and will need to adapt even more quickly to allow some of these disruptive opportunities to carry us to 2030 and beyond.

Biography:Greg Yeric earned his BSEE, MSEE, and PhD in Microelectronics at The University of Texas at Austin. He began his career at Motorola’s Advanced Products Research and Development Laboratories in the area of process integration, subsequently working at TestChip Technologies, HPL Technologies, and Synopsys, in the areas of test structures and yield analysis. In this part of his career, he attended several Semicon West conventions. For the last 12 years, he has been at Arm. He is currently an ARM Fellow in the Research group, focusing on future technology and its interaction with design. At Arm he attended his first DAC, and made a point to visit the DAC’s conveniently held in Austin. Outside of Arm, Greg serves on the TPC for IEEE’s VLSI Technology Symposium and is currently the chair of the Microelectronics Exploratory Committee, a volunteer organization serving DARPA’s MTO office.
