Innovative modeling for technology-design-system co-optimization
Published : 11 January 2019
The post-DOC will support the device modeling part of a research project investigating new methodologies for system and circuit optimization with the aim of achieving a better integration between the knowledge of the detailed characteristics of a specific technology, the circuit-design methodology and the system architecture. The practical goal is to leverage the existing multi-disciplinary know-how for benchmarking of system and technologies to advance the analysis past the usual PPA, PPAY and PPAC approaches that are commonly deployed in such cases.
In more detail, the post-DOC will develop “pre”-spice models for actives and passives which will constitute the basic bricks for the optimization methodology developed in the overall project. Active device modeling will have a starting point in the works of EPFL based on the analytical expression of invariants such has the inversion coefficient.
