The integration of analogue and digital functions on a single chip is necessary for the development of new information technologies for data communications, industrial applications and consumer products.
The primary objective of ADCIS was the adaptation and characterisation of a 1 micron CMOS process for mixed analogue-digital functions and the extraction of the electrical parameters of a submicron CMOS technology, together with the definition of submicron rules. At the same time, design tools were to be developed with the goal of building a system capable of being used to produce silicon compilers involving digital and analogue cells. Finally, a complex integrated circuit was to be designed and manufactured to demonstrate the capabilities of the developed technology and CAD tools.
The most important results achieved by ADCIS were:
The 1 micron analogue digital technology developed in this project is currently in the pre-production phase at an industrial partner line and the demonstrator IC is being used as a vehicle for qualification and is already included in the product catalogue. Additional products for telecommunication applications based on this technology are planned to be incorporated. The CAD tools produced in ADCIS will be commercially exploited by an industrial partner.
