The patent protects a significant productivity enhancement technology, enabling faster and more efficient design of advanced nanometer integrated circuits
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GBT Technologies Inc. ( OTC PINK: GTCH ) (“GBT” or the “Company”), received a notice of publication for its nonprovisional patent application for integrated circuits (“IC”) geometrical design rule automatic correction system and method, which has been assigned an internal code name Omega.
The patent application was published on December 8, 2022 as U.S. Patent Application Publication No. 2022/0390831. The patent application seeks to protect the Company’s intellectual property for automatic correction of geometrical design rule violations within an IC’s layout. Typically, this type of correction is done manually and takes a considerable amount of time to perform.
The goal of the intellectual property is to automatically correct the IC’s layout without manual intervention, maintaining its electrical connectivity and keeping compliance with design for manufacturing (“DFM”) and Reliability Verification (“RV”) constraints. Particularly, in advanced nanometer nodes of 7nm and below, a manual design rule correction may take a significant amount of time, and increase the overall project’s design time.
The patent application describes a technology that can perform the correction within minutes using Artificial Intelligence neural networks algorithms. The patent application describes a capability to perform a full hierarchical correction throughout the microchip’s sub-blocks considering electrical and manufacturing aspects.
The number and complexity of IC’s design rules have been dramatically increased over the recent decade especially in small scale nanometer nodes of 7nm and below which creates a bottleneck to maintaining reasonable timelines, meeting release schedules and achieving desired semiconductor’s cost.
The intellectual property seeks to automatically correct design rule violations with a click-of-a-button, seeking to improve the design’s quality and electrical characteristics, with the goal of enabling the design and manufacturing of better chips with higher silicon yield, faster.
“We consider the Omega intellectual property covered by the patent application a breakthrough in the semiconductor design arena. The immense amount of design time is spent during the design of small nanometer ranges where maintaining geometrical rules compliances has become a major challenge.
Geometrical design rules are constraints dictated by the fabrication process and must be obeyed to correctly manufacture an integrated circuit. This patent application seeks to protect intellectual property addressing a system and method which we believe will save months of manual work simply with a click of a button. We believe this type of system has the potential to be a significant productivity enhancement tool within any IC’s design flow and has the capability to reduce a chip’s design time, shortening the overall project’s time to market factor. In addition, we expect that design changes and modifications will be able to be performed at a faster pace and with ease.
A good analogy is to a spell-checking system. The technology analyzes the entire IC’s data, finding geometrical violations and correcting them automatically, saving what we believe would be a considerable amount of time,” stated Danny Rittman, the Company’s CTO.
There is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in researching, developing or implementing this system or that it will be granted the patent (or prior provisional patent). In order to successfully implement this system, the Company will need to raise adequate capital to support its research and, if successfully researched, developed and granted regulatory approval, the Company would need to enter into 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 be successful in any or all of these critical steps.
