TSMC’s use of Solido solutions for Variation-Aware Design of Memory and Standard Cell at Advanced Process Nodes

Duration: 55 minutes

Request to View and Discuss the Webinar Live with a Solido AE:


Variation effects have an increasing impact on advanced process nodes, and at each, new sources of variation must be considered. Furthermore, increased competition is forcing tighter design margins to make high-performance, low-power, low-cost products. Designers must now do more variation analysis than ever to achieve these tighter margins, using advanced variation-aware technology for speed, accuracy and coverage to deliver competitive chips on schedule. This webinar will discuss on how TSMC manages variation-aware design in memory and standard cell with TSMC advanced processes using Solido’s new Variation Designer 4.


IC Designers • Design Managers • CAD Managers • Directors

What the Audience Will Learn:

Variation-aware design techniques for high-performance, low-power, low-cost products for memory and standard cell.
