HDT mission

  1. 1. HDT High Design Technology World ’s Fastest Circuit Analysis Company
  2. 2. Company Environment Turin home of • Fiat (Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Ferrari ….) • CSELT (Telecom Italia - 4th ww operator) • Politecnico School of Engineering
  3. 3. The Industry Trends 1990 1992 1994 1996 1998 2000 • The Demands • Smaller • Faster • Cheaper • Sooner • The Constraints • Gate delays • Cross talks • Switching noises • Parasitic radiation MHz 80386 80486 Pentium pro Pentium II Pentium 50 100 150 200 250 300 80286
  4. 4. The Legal Requirements Starting January 1996 the European guideline on Electro Magnetic Compatibility is explicit: If the product does not conform… ….it cannot go to the market !
  5. 5. The Engineering Crisis Routing • Electrical Constraints - Gate delays - Cross talks - Switching noises - Parasitic radiation • Geometry Rules - Clearances - Wire & Via Sizes - Routing Layers TheLawofOhm • Smaller - Higher density • Faster - Timing controls • Cheaper - Lower Power • Sooner - Time to Market Schematics Pre-layout Post-layout Controls & Test
  6. 6. The Switching Problem If your signal doesn’t behave you don’t get to the market Before optimization After optimization
  7. 7. Our Mission Providing the Tools to Tame the Signals Directing the pre-layout Verifying the post-layout Converting Electrical Constraints into Geometric Rules Controlling the Routing Process
  8. 8. The Engineering Crisis solved Concurrent routing • Electrical Constraints - Gate delays - Cross talks - Switching noises - Parasitic radiation • Geometry Rules - Clearances - Wire & Via Sizes - Routing Layers TheLawofOhm • Smaller - Higher density • Faster - Timing controls • Cheaper - Lower Power • Sooner - Time to Market Schematics Pre-layout Post-layout Controls & Test
  9. 9. Our Objective Becoming the World ’s Leading Circuit Analysis Company (along with ZR if just possible)
