The presentation, “Variability challenges for analogue and mixed-mode design,” will describe how to combine the speed of digital corners with the accuracy of Monte Carlo simulation to address global and local variation during design. It will also show how epistemic variation can be addressed in a practical way to mitigate overdesign.

|NMI ICCV 2009: 2nd International Conference|
|2 Savoy Place|
The NMI ICCV 2009: 2nd International Conference, "Living with CMOS Variability," is being held May 12 and 13 at Savoy Place, London, the home of the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology). The session during which the presentation will be given, “Delivering Product Performance in the Face of Variability,” will begin immediately following lunch on Wednesday, May 13.
The NMI ICCV 2009 is Europe's only conference dedicated to CMOS variability considerations, and is organized by the NMI (National Microelectronics Institute) in collaboration with the nanoCMOS Consortium. The NMI is the trade association representing the semiconductor industry in the UK and Ireland. Its goal is to help build and support a strong semiconductor community by acting as a catalyst and facilitator for commercial and technological development.
