Abstract:

Adabra is a tool that evaluates design alternatives for Multi-Chip Modules MCM used in electronic packaging. It is used to select a set MCM technology parameters that best fit a specific MCM design problem. The tool consists of Propagation modules and a packaging database. Each propagation module evaluates the design with respect to one technology parameter, e.g., metallization, technology, heat dissipation, etc. As technology changes, more modules can be added. A special correlator module correlates all the outputs and presents the result as a table of parameter values each of which represents a feasible solution. The technology database contains MCM technology data embedded in a PCTE Portable Common Tool Environment object base.
