Initiative promotes process technology accuracy

Hsinchu, Taiwan: With its Active Accuracy Assurance initiative, the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company hopes to achieve new levels of accuracy for TSMC's process technologies. It will feature a new set of standards, which are developed through characterisation, validation, and co-optimisation of critical sub-circuit building blocks that are closely coupled with the company's process technology.

TSMC design ecosystem partners who comply with these standards can assure designers that they will be able to optimise their designs by reducing guard banding and avoiding overdesign. Designers working with EDA tools compliant with the initiative should increase their prospects for first-time silicon success with lower costs and reduced time-to-market.
