The Design Automation Conference has been the most important resource for information on the electronic design and design automation industries for many decades.
Video Results for 48th DAC (2011)


CONVENED TUESDAY, June 07, 2011, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
VIDEO: SESSION 18
TOPIC AREA: ANALOG/MIXED-SIGNAL/RF DESIGN
RESEARCH PAPER SESSION: Analog and Mixed-Signal Design in an Uncertain World
Chair:
Trent McConaghy - Solido Design Automation, Inc., Saskatoon, CA


This session hosts recent innovations to combat the noise and variability issues faced in today's analog and mixed-signal circuits. The first two papers propose novel algorithms for simulating thermal, flicker, and random telegraph noise in the time domain. The next two papers focus on ways to ensure stability and performance of nanoscale analog circuits in the presence of process variation. The final two papers present ideas to improve the system reliability and new advances in reconfigurable analog designs.
