Creating designs to meet reliability challenges has become formidable. How reliable your design is could mean a multi-million-dollar recall or leaving a loved one stranded by the roadside. While digital design lends itself to “extremes” testing, it’s more difficult on the analog/mixed-signal side. Failures can be caused by thermal overstress, device aging, or design abuse. Reliability testing cannot be a few tests during final verification. It needs to be a philosophy permeating the entire design cycle. How confident you are with your design becomes a paramount decision factor. Hear from Cadence, industry, and academic experts about their experiences and expectations for reliable designs.
