TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced it is offering a series of webinars to familiarize existing and potential customers with the design and technical support available to maximize their product performance while minimizing cost. The first webinar that is already available online for TowerJazz’s existing customers is "SBC18H3 Online PDK training" and is based on frequently asked questions by TowerJazz customers. The tutorial focuses on TowerJazz’s SBC18H3 (270GHz SiGe BiCMOS) PDK (Process Design Kit). The webinar is hosted by Dr. Samir Chaudhry, TowerJazz’s Director of Design Enablement, in the form of streaming slides and video capture of a live PDK session, along with audio and visual guidance. The training is targeted for both existing and new designers and layout engineers of TowerJazz's SiGe BiCMOS technologies and is available to anyone with access to the SBC18H3 PDK on TowerJazz's portal.
The SBC18H3 training session introduces the technology platform, reviews PDK installation procedures, devices such as SiGe NPNs, MOSFETs, resistors, capacitors, and inductors are elucidated in significant detail, and a "Tips and Tricks" slide summarizes the recommended use of the device for optimum performance. The second section of the training focuses on optimization of the design for yield. Advanced statistical modeling tools unique to TowerJazz's PDKs such as Monte Carlo, X-Sigma, and wafer specific modeling tools are introduced, focusing on "why, when and how" a designer should use these tools. Training concludes with instructions on how to run the final verification on a design for manufacturing rules with a focus on meeting density requirements unique to analog intensive designs.
The next webinar in the series will be focused on TowerJazz’s ESD offering and will be hosted on August 7, 2014 by Dr. Efraim Aharoni, Principal Engineer, ESD Team Leader, and Mr. Roda Kanawati, ESD Expert and Power Management Device Engineer, for one hour including presentations and a Q&A session. The target of this session is to introduce to the design community the rich ESD offering provided by TowerJazz which enables easy and safe design for ESD production and the flexibility required for specific needs. It covers ESD/LU-related qualification methodology, ESD guidelines to designers, ESD device characterization, and verification tools. Special emphasis is placed on PDK ESD elements such as parameterized cells, design rules, models, and protection schemes required for safe design for ESD and short time to market. In addition, the implementation of Programmable Electronic Rule Check (PERC) for ESD is described.
Dr. Aharoni will focus on TowerJazz’s general ESD offering while Mr. Kanawati will describe the ESD solutions available for Power Management design. To register for this webinar or find out about future sessions, please visit: http://www.towerjazz.com/webinars/.
Following the live event, an archived version of the webinar will be available on the TowerJazz website.

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
