Abstract

Interconnection and packaging are among the dominant factors that limit the performance of future integrated circuits containing millions of transistors. As chips become more complex, so does the packaging. Design automation is thus without doubt necessary. In this paper, a window based simulation environment called PDSE (Packaging Design Support Environment) which integrates several tools for VLSI interconnection modeling and simulations is presented. We will describe the concept of the automated packaging design cycle, the structure and the components of the simulation environment, and the implementation of an interconnect layout geometry data extractor. Finally a case study will be given to illustrate the entire design process.
