Keynote address: Taming the challenges in advanced node design
Tom Beckley, Senior Vice President, Research and Development, Custom IC and Signoff, Silicon Realization Group, Cadence Design System, Inc.

As process technology marches relentlessly forward producing multi-billion-transistor integrated circuits, there is much discussion about best design techniques and power consumption strategies in the digital community. But what does this mean for the custom and analog design worlds? Is 20nm the final frontier? How about 14nm? Are there insurmountable problems due to the exacting and power-hungry devices that make up the analog world? Well, the custom dinosaur isn’t extinct quite yet. Join this session to hear how circuit design, physical implementation, and verification are fusing into a new advanced-node methodology that copes with layout-dependent effects, complex interconnect rules, and lithography/colorization challenges so that custom and digital design can flourish together.
