Phases of the IC Development Cycle
Chips have a ubiquitous presence in our lives. Their role and importance continue to grow with advances in artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, cloud and datacenter applications. Today, even a car can have as many as several thousand chips. The world once took chips for granted, but the global semiconductor shortage and the signing of the CHIPS act into law have turned that around and brought increased attention to the significance of the semiconductor industry and chip design. Despite challenging economic conditions, the demand for chips remains strong. Developing chips involves many phases, including requirements specification, design planning, implementation, verification, manufacturing and testing. Each phase requires in-depth expertise and specialization. The early stages of training for semiconductor professionals,can lead to a limited understanding of the other steps and phases involved in the process, similar to the parable of the blind men and an elephant. Come and broaden your perspective on the entire process of developing a chip from concept to product.
