This is a 2-day training seminar for the OptEM Inspector software tool. OptEM Inspector is used for layout-to-circuit device extraction, and interconnect and substrate RC extraction of deep submicron analog, digital and mixed-signal ICs. The software incorporates advanced 2-d and 3-d numerical methods for fast and accurate extraction of interconnect and substrate parasitics, and applies efficient circuit reduction techniques to reduce the size and complexity of the circuit models generated. The circuit models are provided in standard output formats including SPICE, HSPICE, VHDL and others.
The format of the 2-day course includes a combination of tutorial presentations, open discussions, and hands-on software demonstrations. Upon completion of the seminar, participants will have access to a free 30-day evaluation of OptEM Inspector. A sampleoutlineis available for review.
Participants will learn to perform basic (active device) extractions, 2-d and 3-d RC interconnect extractions, and 3-d substrate extractions. Participants will also be introduced to the structure of the technology files used by OptEM Inspector, and will edit existing processes and build a new process that is used in the demonstration examples. Also included in the seminar are theoretical reviews of electromagnetic analysis, extraction numerical techniques, transmission line theory, and substrate modeling performed by the OptEM Inspector software.
For the hands-on demonstrations, we strongly encourage participants to bring their own laptops running Linux (RedHAt or similar OS). Arrangements should be made prior to the course for participants to receive and load a copy of the software onto their laptops for use during the class demonstrations. Please contact OptEM for details regarding the hardware and operating system requirements.
The seminarinstructoris Dr. Juliusz Poltz, an experienced and well respected member of the electromagnetic and signal integrity community. He is a senior member of IEEE, and has taught electromagnetics, mathematics, and signal integrity to hundreds of engineers worldwide.
The seminar fees are based on the number of engineers you wish to have attend the course, as well as the location of your facility. We charge a flat rate total for the 2-days which is payable in advance of the seminar and includes instructor time, travel costs, and all course material handouts for the attendees. No additional costs or fees are charged.
