IC Design

Integrated circuit (IC) design is a central area of semiconductor development and thus essential for the manufacture of components such as microprocessors, FPGAs, memory (RAM, ROM and Flash) and digital ASICs. ICs consist of miniaturized electronic components that are incorporated into an electrical network on a monolithic semiconductor substrate by photolithography. IC design is divided into the overarching categories of digital and analog IC design. Digital design focuses on logical correctness, maximizing circuit density, and placement of circuits so that clock and timing signals are efficiently routed. Analog design addresses the physics of semiconductor devices such as gain, matching, power dissipation, and resistance.

This year's IC design session will take a closer look at analog/mixed-signal ICs, as well as energy-efficient and low-voltage ICs. Likewise, RISC-V and Arm play an important role in this session. Based on FDX technology, we present low-power IC design for FE and e-MRAM as concrete application examples. Last but not least, we address the challenges of chip design for flexible films or design for Artificial Intelligence (AI) or the Internet of Things (IoT).

We invite you to share and discuss your use cases, expectations and questions in the field of IC design as well as your current challenges and next steps in the development of modern ICs!

The session is presented by ARM Limited.
