Automotive power micro-electronic devices in the past were low pin-count, low complexity devices. Robustness could be assessed by stressing the few operating conditions and by manual analysis of the simple analog circuitry. Nowadays complexity of Automotive Smart Power Devices is driven by the demands for energy efficiency and safety, which adds the need(More)
Design constraints describe the intent of IC designers when developing electronic circuits. Constraints from, e.g., electrical and thermal domains are transformed into corresponding physical constraints for layout design. Physical constraints can also be derived from circuit patterns or extracted layout netlists. The constraint verification is of utmost(More)
Mission Profiles contain top-level stress information for the design of future systems. These profiles are refined and transformed to design constraints. We present methods to propagate the constraints between design domains like package and chip. We also introduce a cross-domain methodology for our corresponding constraint transformation system ConDUCT.(More)
This paper presents a new methodology for routing net bundles like busses and paired nets maintaining parasitic symmetry. It is mainly devoted to analog signal interconnect and can also be used for critical digital busses or clock signals. The PARasitic SYmmetric router (PARSY) is the first router that limits differential capacitances to a user defined(More)
Algorithms for the length-compensation of bus geometries are presented. The algorithms are capable of automatically rerouting busses such that individual trace lengths are equalized, for an arbitrary number of traces, an arbitrary distribution of starting trace lengths, as well as arbitrary trace widths and intertrace spacings. Algorithms are also presented(More)
