Mountain View, CA--March 30, 2000-- In his keynote entitled "Physical Design: No Surprise is the Best Surprise," Dr. Aart de Geus, chairman and CEO of Synopsys, will address at ISPD 2000 the challenges of physical design in 0.18-micron processes and below.
The ISPD provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results in critical areas related to the physicaldesign of VLSI systems. This meeting evolved from the ACM/SIGDA Physical Design Workshops held during the years 1987 to1996. The scope of this symposium includes all aspects of physical design, from interactions with behavior- and logic-level synthesis, to back-end performance analysis and verification.
With current time-to-marketpressures, problems found late in the design cycle such as failing time constraints, power supply noise and cross talk canwreak havoc in the design of a complex chip. Dr. de Geus will suggest a methodology approach that reduces uncertainty andincreases quality of results.
Synopsys, Inc. will be a sponsor of the International Symposium on Physical Design (ISPD) conference that takes place in San Diego, CA April 9-12, 2000.
Other conference topics cover technology trends in EDA, current challenges, developments in routing, issues ininterconnect, the expanding realm of physical design, and floorplanning and partitioning. There is also a panel on EDA andthe Internet.
ISPD has over forty papers, talks and panels on physical design.
