Multi-technology design can provide a suitable alternative for high-performance or high-function integration products if implemented with modern design tools and flows. Multi-technology design spans all design domains, including electrical, physical, circuit-system, design or analysis, etc., thereby making it challenging in its own right as a design methodology. This design simply means that more than one manufacturing technology is being used to meet product requirements, including signals operating above 1 GHz. Multi-technology design is suitable for interconnects and interactions because this is the weakest link. A greater emphasis is needed on ensuring that the design is manufacturable across the multiple component steps such as individual die and then across each integrating step. Design flows comprising people, process, and electronic design automation (EDA) and computer-aided design (CAD) tools must be implemented, in order to design out the issues associated with multi-technology design.
