  1. Focus Group 2: Spiraling mask Costs ISPD-2003

  2. Elena Dubrova Royal Institute of Technology Are FPGAs not good enough? Hamid Savoj Magma Design Automation Wants to know everything about advanced technologies. Kemichi Kurimoto Sony Physical implementation in deep submicron Kenneth S. McElvain Synplicity Good business!! Leon Stok IBM ISPD talk The Team Members • Markus Hütter • Infineon Technologies • Mask costs drive interest of responsible people to regular structures • Robert K. Brayton • University of California, Berkeley • Interest in regular structures and mask cost savings • Tsutomu Sasao • Kyushu Institute of Technology • Interest in test issues and regular structures • Yean-Yow Hwang • Altera • Increasing mask costs are good for the FPGA market ISPD-2003

  3. Mask Costs ISPD-2003

  4. The untold story on Mask Costs • Hype on Mask cost does not account for learning. • MASK YIELD ENHANCEMENT is lagging compared to process yields • Better execute current techniques: • Process controls, cleaning, inspection and repair. • New techniques and tools: • Aerial imaging mask inspection uses. • AFM based repair • Maskless litho based on optical micro-mirrors ISPD-2003

  5. Mask as percentage of design cost ISPD-2003

  6. Design Time Silicon Efficiency ASICS FPGA Full Custom Markets Spectrum of design implementation Structured ASICS Structured CAD • Two metal layers • Problems solved • Powergrid • Test • Clock • Signal Integrity • Fab Time ISPD-2003
