This hands-on course is designed to teach you how to to predict electromagnetic coupling effects at block or chip level during the physical verification sign-off phase of the design within a traditional custom IC design flow using the Exalto electromagnetic modeling engine.
The course also introduces you to the Exalto user interface (UI) and how it is used to generate a fully coupled electromagnetic (EM) model of any combination of nets selected by the user, which is then automatically back-annotated to the original schematic or extracted view of the design and can be simulated in any circuit simulator as-is.
- Basic understanding of custom IC design flows and electromagnetics
- Some general familiarity with EM solvers
- No prior knowledge or experience of Exalto is required
Chip IP/SoC/CAD Engineers & Designers
Self-paced slide presentation and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. Emphasis is placed on tool background & methodology as well as workshops.
