URANOS: Analyzing methods for Designing robust applications of specific Nano-electronic Systems

Printer-friendly version Send by email PDF version

The goal of URANOS is to develop EDA methods for the design of nanoelectronic systems under consideration of incompletely defined operating conditions. The results will lead to a preparation for failure of application specific components in a system and to compensate partial failures on functional level. URANOS gives main contributions to the design of micro- and nanoelectronic systems, which shall be robust with respect to imponderabilities of their later employment. Therefore, URANOS explores analysis-based methods for the detection of application-specific employment factors in an early phase of the design process. With state of the art design approaches these factors often become obvious as recently as finished chips are in the field test of concrete applications. By better considering the environment of the final product, the resulting time and cost intense design iterations will be reduced by the new approaches developed in URANOS.
