When Developing New Silicon IP, Is First Pass Success Possible? Part 2

Brandt Braswell, Member of the Technical Staff at Freescale Semiconductor describes how to mitigate some of the risk to make designs a first pass success. This blog outlines the solutions of two problems?

  • What if scenarios to allow for variations in the circuits not planned?
  • Does the design team have access to correlation data of the simulations models used for development against silicon data?

When Developing new Silicon IP, Is First Pass Success possible?

This article explains the need for your integrated circuit designs to be first pass successes and not the typical two to three spins or more to reach the targeted performance.

The question is this: Is first pass success feasible and should be expected? So what are some of the decision criteria if followed would help enable your designs to be first pass successes?
