  • Current Project : Synthesis & Placement for Multi-voltage & Multi-supply designs
  • Software Description:  Development of new technology for Physical compiler & Design compiler which allows a semiconductor vendors to design chips which can have different modules operating at different voltages, thus better optimizing power & speed. This involves being able to synthesis a designers specifications taking into consideration how the different power's flow and switching-on & off various sections of the chip. This is one of the latest and hottest semi-conductor technology which needs a lot of work before it can be completely automated providing a much lesser turn-around time for such chips in future.
  • Some highlights of the project are:-
  • Analysis: Feasibilty of various solutions, prototyping the solutions and analyzing them for their performances.
  • Role

     

  • Project : Spare cells placement
  • Software Description: Automatic detection & placement of spare cells in the floorplan.  It enables a better quality of results of the overall placement of the Chip and allows On-Silicon engineering changes.
  • Role: Researched the Algorithm and developed the functionality to be delivered to the customers.
