W5MOS-AK: Compact Modeling Support for OpenPDK and FOSS IC Designs


09:30 - 13:00

room 7-8


Wladek Grabinski (MOS-AK, EU)  


MOS-AK workshop discusses the frontiers of the compact models which are the core of reliable PDKs for the advanced semiconductor technologies. However, the semiconductor industry facing the workforce challenges, particularly in retaining skilled technicians and engineers. To meet the global demand, the FOSS CAD/EDA tools with the recently available open access PDKs provide a new platform to connect IC design beginners, enthusiasts and experienced mentors to benefit from the fast-growing open-source IC design movement. The content will be beneficial for anyone who needs to learn what is really behind the FOSS CAD/EDA IC simulation in modern compact models in OpenPDKs with the open source analog/RF and digital IC examples.
