International Workshop on
Power And Timing Modeling, Optimization and Simulation

BackgroundThe workshop is a series of international workshops having been held in several places in Europe. PATMOS has over the years evolved into a well established and outstanding series of open European events on power and timing aspects of integrated circuit design. The increased interest, especially in low-power design, adds further momentum to the interest in this workshop. Despite its growth, the workshop can still be considered as an informal but very focused conference, featuring high-level scientific presentations together with open discussions and panel sessions in a free and easy environment. 


The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to discuss and investigate the emerging problems in the design methodologies and CAD-tools for the new generation of IC technologies. A major emphasis of the technical program is on speed and low-power aspects with particular regard to modeling, characterization, design, and architectures. The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to design and CAD aspects of:

  • Low power design: high performance low power systems, ultra low power systems, special architectures.
  • Modeling and synthesis: timing, power, low-voltage, interconnect, crosstalk.
  • Timing design: clocking, synchronization, asynchronous and self timed systems, adiabatic switching.
  • Optimization: low voltage low power logic families, logic parallelization, pipelining, fast low power arithmetic.
  • Physical design: module generation, library optimization and characterization, area estimation.
  • Physical test and characterization: low VT low voltage process, SOI, IDDQ, models and parameter extraction, experimental design for process control.
  • Design methods and CAD tools: for low voltage low power design, high speed circuits.
  • Trade-offs between devices, architectures and technologies, benchmark comparison.
