SAN DIEGO, Aug. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GBT Technologies Inc. (OTC PINK: GTC ) (“GBT” or the “Company”) has filed a non-provisional patent application for automatic system and method correction of integrated circuit (IC) electrical connectivity mismatches. The application was filed on August 3, 2022, with Application No. 17880055. The non-provisional application The patent application seeks to protect methodologies and programmatic algorithms for automating the correction of electrical connectivity mismatches of integrated circuits in order to obtain faster and more efficient designs, especially for the advanced nanometer range of 5nm and below. An integrated circuit design workflow consists of a few steps that involve software tools to design, capture, simulate, and verify the correctness of the integrated circuit in a few areas. Electronic Design Automation (EDA), are key elements in transforming a product definition and circuit concept into a production-ready IC design A Layout-Vs-Schematics (LVS) verification program is part of integral to the IC approval process to compare the electrical connectivity (wiring) of an IC layout against its block diagram. A connectivity incompatibility would mean that there is a wrong wiring connection between the electronic components and can lead to a non-working chip circuit or a bad electrical result. Generally, in custom and semi-custom analog, mixed and RF layout styles, these corrections have to be done manually, which is very time-consuming.
GBT’s non-provisional patent application seeks to protect an algorithmic system and method for performing automatic LVS correction at the click of a button. The system will read the IC schematics and layout data, compare their electrical connections (wiring), and if mismatch is detected, disconnect the faulty wires and re-route them through the layout to create correct electrical conductivity. The goal of the system is to automatically correct the layout, without causing LVS, Geometric (DRC), Reliability Check (RV), and Design for Manufacturing (DFM) violations. GBT has already started research in this area and plans to expand it during 2022.
“We expect there will be global growth in semiconductors over the next decade. A $52 billion bill awaits President Biden’s signature, major IC manufacturing companies have started building IC manufacturing plants in the United States, and major R&D efforts are steadily increasing by integrated circuit design companies. GBT invests in microchip’s productivity tools, especially for advanced nodes. As major physical hurdles approach with small nodes, like 5nm and 3nm, there is a strong demand for programmatic solutions to aid in the design and fabrication of these advanced ICs. Advanced design automation solutions will be the key to producing advanced node chips in a timely manner. GBT has identified weak points and bottlenecks in the field of IC layout and backend design and is investing extensive efforts to provide algorithmic solutions to address these challenges. One of the main ones is the LVS domain. Our non-provisional patent application seeks to protect an automated LVS correction system to analyze whole-chip data, check for electrical connectivity incompatibilities, and automatically correct them with a single click. The remediation process will consist of identifying existing incompatible connections, disconnecting them and re-routing them correctly. This technology includes hierarchical auto-correction and other advanced node features. It is a huge challenge to perform such an operation programmatically and we use our artificial intelligence technology to handle the large amount of data processing, perform the difficult mathematical analysis, conclude possible solutions and perform automatic correction. IP includes advanced neural networks and algorithms to achieve these features in a very short time, which can take days or weeks to fix manually. The goal of this technology is to introduce another innovative design productivity enhancement tool from GBT, enabling IC design companies to significantly reduce the overall design time of their projects and make their microchips more to market quickly,” said Danny Rittman, the company’s CTO.
There is no guarantee that the Company will succeed in researching, developing or implementing this system. In order to successfully implement this concept, the Company will need to raise sufficient capital to support its research and, if research, development and regulatory approval are successful, the Company will need to establish a strategic relationship with a third party that has experience in manufacturing, selling and distributing this product. There is no guarantee that the Company will successfully complete any or all of these critical milestones.
