Design for reliability – the golden age of simulation driven product design

The design and implementation process for integrated circuits (ICs) has been honed and perfected for decades by the design and the electronic design automation (EDA) community. However, the reliability verification process has been slow to catch up, especially due to the complex nature of failure mechanisms. Chip designers in the past were willing to take risks when it came to reliability verification because it was not seen as a functional failure or something that caused yield fallout. But times have changed and the EDA and simulation software community has swiftly responded to the needs of a simulation driven reliability analysis model. This article will delve into what it takes to design for reliability today. Over a decade ago, the IC design and verification process would include design margin for almost every form of physical verification. Margins were added for seve...
