FinFETs have recently overtaken bulk CMOS transistors as the device of choice for systems-on-chip. This paper provides some background on FinFETs together with their associated manufacturing processes and shows how they influence physical design of standard cells as well as place & route and timing closure for larger blocks.
Quality assurance activities, in software development, are the backbone of whole project. These activities are not only responsible of product quality, but also for process quality. In conventional software development QA is a separate group of QA experts. As the trends of software development moved towards agile development, QA activities also got changed.… (More)
