Abstract:

What are some great careers? Two good examples are computer professionals and semiconductor professionals. They both have worked together for decades and have made computers vastly powerful and extremely intelligent. We feel excited that computers, portable devices, drones, cars, et al. are made to improve our quality of lives even further. This talk focus on semiconductor research and development (R&D) that relies heavily on EDA software tools, which were born around 50 years ago. EDA stands for electronic design automation. Besides describing new and useful semiconductor research tasks, the speaker hopes to explain why more and more computer programmers are needed to write EDA software to enable semiconductor research and the Moore’s Law in the coming decades. This talk will explain why there are varieties of essential EDA tools and will describe a subset of interesting EDA tools and algorithms such as numerical method, block chain, matrix inversion, nodal analysis, Boolean algebra and circuits, Fourier transform, placement of circuits, interconnect routing for circuits, circuit testing, delay calculation, and timing analysis.

 

Biography:
張克正博士目前在新竹台積電總部設計暨技術平台部門 (DTP) 研發電子設計自動化 (Electronic Design Automation, EDA) 軟體。他曾在國立清華大學資訊工程學系任職
九年半,教授與EDA以及 CMOS電路設計相關的課程。他並且從事研究EDA新的演算法,發展奈米CMOS電路可生產性設計 (DFM) 技術,與執行高頻電子電路設計。張博士在1983
年獲得國立台灣大學電機系學士與碩士學位後,到美國加州大學洛杉磯分校 (UCLA) 就讀博士班,研究電子設計自動化軟體。他在1989年拿到電腦科學博士學位後,曾在美國
加州矽谷的惠普電腦公司總部 (Hewlett-Packard Company) 從事高頻CMOS電子設計自動化軟體與高頻電子電路研發。他在1995年與多位矽谷的朋友共同從事CMOS半導體
相關的高科技創業與行銷,並於2003年回國,陸續在國立清華大學與台積電總部任職至今。張克正博士已有13件美國專利局與2件中華民國專利局授予的半導體相關專利。
