FSA Appoints Sequence Design Project Manager to Modeling Committee Board

12/8/2003 - Dr. Li-Fu Chang, Sequence Design project manager, has been named to the Fabless Semiconductor Association's (FSA) Modeling Committee.

The purpose of the FSA Modeling Committee is to improve the quality of circuit models used by FSA member companies, including SPICE and Interconnect models. The Committee is dedicated to communicating news on innovation and the discussion of current modeling topics closely related to model generation, extraction, validation, and comparison. In addition, the Modeling Committee is tasked with refining the next-generation modeling survey.

“Dr. Chang has been doing pioneering work in the area of RLC parasitic modeling for a number of years,” said Pekka Ojala, FSA Modeling Committee chairman. “His research work in the area of interconnect capacitance extraction, mutual inductance and s-parameter modeling led to this appointment. We are looking forward to Li-Fu’s contributions to the FSA in modeling nanometer silicon effects.”

“It is a great honor to be serving on this committee,” Dr. Chang said. “I believe my experience in the development of extraction technologies and intellectual property can benefit the FSA and the industry at large, and I am looking forward to working with my colleagues on these important issues.”

Dr. Chang obtained his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana in 1996. His area of research interest is interconnect modeling and characterization. He has published more than 35 technical papers in international journals and conferences and holds multiple U.S. patents.

About the Fabless Semiconductor Association
The FSA is the global voice of fabless and hybrid semiconductor companies and their foundry and supply chain partners. Incorporated in 1994, the Association (www.fsa.org) is focused on the perpetuation of the fabless business model throughout the worldwide semiconductor industry. The organization encourages the relationship between semiconductor companies and suppliers; facilitates business partnerships; creates awareness of the fabless/outsourced business model; disseminates industry data; and fosters standards and policies.

FSA members include fabless companies, integrated device manufacturers (IDMs), foundry providers, packaging/assembly houses, intellectual property providers, electronic design automation companies, OEMs, photomask companies, design software companies, investment bankers, venture capitalists and other companies. FSA members represent more than 21 countries spanning North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.
