A very interesting workshop was held in my Alma Mater (LETI – Electrotechnical Universrity) in Saint Petersburg, Russia on 4-8 July 2017.
The workshop contained lots of interesting presentations – largely from industry and largely on modelling and empirical measurements of the EM interference in microsystems and ICs. Basically, the problem of reuse and block replacement is huge due to the unpredictability of the EM effects between components on PCB and on chip.
Here are the presentations:
Milos Krstic (from IHP) and I gave a keynote talk, which consisted of two parts:
(1) Digital Systems Clocking with and without clock: a historical retrospective (emphasizing the role of researchers from LETI – mostly Victor Varshavsky’s group where I used to work in the 1980s)
(2) Main technical contribution: Reducing Switching Noise Effects by Advanced Clock Management: M. Krstic, X. Fan, M. Babic, E. Grass, T. Bjerregaard, A. Yakovlev
