Wanted: Mask Equipment for Mature Nodes


Rising demand for chips at mature nodes is impacting the photomask supply chain, causing huge demand for trailing-edge masks and a shortfall of older mask equipment. The big issue is the equipment shortfall, which could impact customers on several fronts. Tool shortages could lead to longer mask turnaround times and delivery schedules for chips being developed at 90nm and above, which are bu... » read more

Speedier, More Accurate Testing of Automotive Sensors Is Here


The amount of electronic content in automobiles continues to grow at a brisk pace, and sensors represent a significant percentage of cars’ electronics. MarketsandMarkets estimates that the automotive sensors market alone will reach US$36.42 billion in value by 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7 percent between 2017 and 2023. Sensors in cars are used to monitor and control... » read more

ADAS Further Extends 7nm Challenges


As we discussed previously on the LPHP blog, 7nm nodes hold great promise for reducing power, improving performance and increasing density for next-generation chips, but also present a set of engineering challenges. When you factor in the standards set for autonomous vehicles (AV) and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) system-on-chips or SoCs, those challenges can more than double. Autom... » read more

Temperature Reduction on a High-Power Thermal Demonstrator


High-power applications in microelectronic devices and systems is a crucial and severe issue that may cause elevated thermal and thermomechanical phenomena and finally lead the fabricated system to degradation, limitation of its performance, or even failure and destruction of its features. In specific applications, such as those found in the industry and the automotive sector, the power pro... » read more

Why Test Costs Will Increase


The economics of test are under siege. Long seen as a necessary but rather mundane step in ensuring chip quality, or a way of testing circuitry from the inside while it is still in use, manufacturers and design teams have paid little attention to this part of the design-through-manufacturing flow. But problems have been building for some time in three separate areas, and they could have a b... » read more

Automakers Take On More Responsibility


Chip and EDA companies are scrambling to deal with stiff safety regulations and harsh environmental conditions for automotive chips, but automakers are making big changes of their own to ensure all those components work together as expected. The result is a significant shift of responsibilities of companies in the automotive supply chain. Carmakers traditionally have left verification, valid... » read more

Autonomous Vehicles: IC Design Flow Walk Through


Automotive applications, particularly those related to AI and computer vision, are a significant driver of the current semiconductor boom. Established companies are mostly thriving, it’s true, but perhaps more interesting are all the new faces in the game. As usual, Mentor CEO Wally Rhines is one of the great sense-makers of the all this activity. Wally has been making the rounds at variou... » read more
