Towards Unfailing Analog Circuits for Biomedical and Automotive Applications
Applications such as biomedical and automotive depend on extremely reliable electronics that are guaranteed to function correctly under all operating conditions and over the entire application lifetime. This seminar will focus on design techniques to make analog circuits smarter and unfailing. The approach taken heavily relies on digitally assisted architectures on the one hand, on detailed reliability modeling and real-time mitigation on the other hand, and on sophisticated test and DfT approaches for the detection of defective ICs before rollout. The lecture will explore the boundaries for the design of ultra-reliable analog circuits.
