David Wiens - Optimizing the Design Process for Flexible Hybrids

Plenary 1: Market & Road Maps

Optimizing the Design Process for Flexible Hybrids
Tuesday, June 20, 2017 
9:25 AM - 9:50 AM

Design of FHEs has stressed the traditional design tool chain and processes borrowed from adjacent domains. This session will discuss the challenges of FHE design and the hand-off to manufacturing. Designs must be created and verified in 3D. New design constraint decks must be defined. Multi-physics analysis tools must consider new material and environmental conditions. The manufacturing product model must support new design objects to receive data from design. Best practices learned from the IC, packaging and PCB design disciplines will be addressed as they might apply to FHE to enable a co-design process that supports rapid design-to-mfg iterations.
