Fast Solvers for Electromagnetics-Based Analysis and Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems
December 11, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CST
The design of advanced integrated circuits and microsystems from zero to terahertz frequencies calls for fast and accurate electromagnetics-based modeling and simulation. The sheer complexity and high design cost associated with the integrated circuits and microsystems prevent one from designing them based on hand calculation, approximation, intuition, or trial and error. The move towards higher frequencies and heterogeneous technologies stresses the need even more. However, the analysis and design of integrated circuits and microsystems impose many unique challenges on electromagnetic analysis such as exponentially increased problem size and extremely multiscaled system spanning from nano- to centi-meter scales. In her talk, Prof. Jiao will present recent advances in fast solvers to tackle these challenges.
