The patent describes an automatic correction of microchip’s electrical connectivity mismatches technology that could achieve major design cycle time reduction.
SAN DIEGO, Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GBT Technologies Inc. ( OTC PINK: GTCH ) (“GBT” or the “Company”), nonprovisional patent application for automatic correction of Integrated Circuits electrical connectivity mismatches, received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”). The application was filed on August 3, 2022 and received application #17880055. The non-provisional patent application describes programmatic algorithms to automate integrated circuits electrical connectivity mismatches correction with the goal of achieving faster and more efficient designs, particularly for advanced nanometer range of 5nm and below. A Layout-Vs-Schematics (“LVS”) Verification program is an integral part of the integrated circuits (“IC”) signoff process to compare the electrical connectivity (wiring) of an IC layout against its schematic diagram. If a connectivity mismatch is detected that means a faulty wiring connection exists between electronic components and may lead to a non-functional chip’s circuit or wrong electrical outcome. Typically, in a custom and semi-custom Analog, MIXED and RF layout styles, these corrections must be fixed manually which takes a significant amount of design time and may have further impacts resulting in other geometrical design rules violations and similar. GBT’s non-provisional patent application seeks to protect an algorithmic system and method to perform an automatic LVS correction with a click of a button. The system will read the IC’s schematic and layout data, compare their electrical connections (wiring) and in case of mismatches, disconnect the incorrect wires, and re-route them in the correct way.
“We are excited to take the next step with our Sigma (Internal Code Name) nonprovisional patent application covering automatic correction. We have identified bottlenecks within IC layout and backend design arenas and this is the first of a series electronic design automation (EDA) patent that we filed, providing algorithmic solutions to address manufacturing process verification challenges. We believe the Sigma technology addresses one of the major ones, which is in the LVS domain. An automatic correction of electrical connectivity mismatches within an IC data can be a significant time-consuming process, especially with advanced nanometer chips, like 5nm and below, which may include billions of transistors and wires. The Sigma technology presents an automated LVS correction system to analyze an entire chip data, checking for electrical connectivity mismatches with the goal of rapidly auto-correcting them. The correction process involves the identification of existing wrong connections, disconnecting them, and re-routing them correctly. The non-provisional patent application includes a summary of an AI technology to manage the data processing, performing the challenging mathematical analysis, concluding possible solutions and the execution of an auto-correction function. We believe this technology is an innovative design productivity enhancement, which has the ability to enable IC design firms to achieve reduction of their overall projects design time and to bring their microchips to market faster, which in turn may create new horizons for the semiconductor industry,” stated Danny Rittman, the Company’s CTO.
