Implementing a Multi-Domain SystemAugust 11, 2020 by Mentor, a Siemens Business
Sensor-based designs, such as IoT systems, combine many design domains implemented on CMOS. These systems can be implemented on multiple dies and could employ multiple packages. To accommodate multiple sensor types, a traditional CMOS IC flow must be extended to include MEMS and photonics elements along with analog and digital elements. If the system communicates with the Cloud, an RF element is also necessary.
Multi-domain design requires that analog, digital, RF, photonics, and MEMS elements are designed and work together within the system. The team must capture each element of the design, perform layout, and verification. Tanner EDA provides an integrated, top-down design flow for IoT design that supports the five design domains.
In this whitepaper from Mentor, a Siemens Business, learn about the key Tanner design flow solutions that make multi-domain systems successful.
