Lithography is one of the key steps in semiconductor manufacturing, which turns the designed circuit and layout into real objects. Two popular research directions are lithography hotspot detection and types of mask optimizations. We will focus on mask optimization in this blog. Mask optimization tries to compensate diffraction information loss…


Logic synthesis is one of the most important steps in modern chip design, and consequently in EDA. Logic synthesis converts the behavioural level description into gate level description, which is one of the most important problems in EDA. Logic synthesis is the implementation of the specific logic functions by generating…
