At what point in the creation of a chip does physical design actually begin? (Spoiler Alert: answers may vary.) In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, Dave Stratman and I discuss the ongoing challenges of the physical design process, why convergent design flows are critical for today’s ever shrinking process nodes, and how form factor and the environment around the end customer affects physical design. We also check out the details of the world’s first 3nm test chip rolled out by Imec and Cadence Design Systems this week.
