A model-based system engineering approach to advanced semiconductor package design

Estimated Watching Time: 60 minutes


A system engineering approach to advanced semiconductor package design

Semiconductor companies are looking at new, system-level approaches as continued efforts to keep up with Moore’s law increase price and design complexity. At the same time, the demand for computational power and the widespread applications of edge computing creates enormous pressure on the industry. All the while, semiconductor companies must not increase product time to market, give up on profit margins, or sacrifice quality. This leads to advanced packaging being more critical than ever, and we are seeing packaging complexity increase exponentially with 2.5D/3D designs. So, just like the aerospace companies before them, the semiconductor industry must adopt a model-based system engineering approach that emphasizes an integrated product design workflow.

You will learn:

This webinar will provide an overview of how Siemens has curated a solution that allows an organization to move inputs from architectural fit studies to electrical layout to mechanical models and then bring the inputs over to simulation to validate design parameters, explore additional designs that would be impossible for one engineer to consider, and then ground the data with calibrated test results. Siemens is currently the only EDA vendor to implement a fully integrated solution that will allow organizations to reap the full benefits of digital transformation on a unified toolchain ecosystem.
