Fast Solvers for Electromagnetics-Based Analysis and Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems
Prof. Dan Jiao
Purdue University, USA
Abstract: 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 DML talk, Prof. Jiao will present recent advances in fast solvers to tackle these challenges.
Speaker’s Bio: Dan Jiao received her Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in 2001. She then worked at the Technology Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Division, Intel Corporation until September 2005, as a Senior CAD Engineer, Staff Engineer, and Senior Staff Engineer. In September 2005, she joined Purdue University as an Assistant Professor with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, where she became a tenured Associate Professor in 2009, and a Full Professor in 2013. Prof. Jiao has authored over 300 papers in refereed journals and international conferences. Her current research interests include computational multiphysics, computational electromagnetics, and high-frequency integrated circuit design and analysis. Prof. Jiao has received many research recognitions including the Intel’s 2019 Outstanding Researcher Award, the 2013 S. A.
