High-Capacity Electromagnetic Solutions for High Speed IC Design

Professor Dan Jiao

As on-chip designers travel deeper and deeper into the submicron regime (and the nanometer regime), computational electromagnetics, the science of solving Maxwell’s equations, has increasingly become essential for high-performance IC design.

However, very large scale IC design demands very large scale analysis, which cannot be offered by current computational electromagnetic techniques. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to innovate high-capacity computational electromagnetic methods so that the VLSI revolution can continue uninterrupted.

In this talk, we will introduce high-capacity computational electromagnetic methods being developed at Purdue University under the support of Intel Corporation and Office of Naval Research.

Dan Jiao received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in October 2001. She then worked at Technology CAD (Computer-Aided-Design) Division at the Intel Corporation until September 2005 as Senior CAD Engineer, Staff Engineer, and Senior Staff Engineer. In September 2005, she joined Purdue University as an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. She has authored two book chapters and 59 papers in refereed journals and international conferences. The winner of many best paper prizes and awards, she is responsible for a number of innovative algorithms in high-frequency VLSI CAD, most significant of which is her invention of circuit-print projection translation method as an industry-first full-wave solution for full-chip analysis.
