A Priori Wire Length Estimates for Digital Design by Dirk Stroobandt

By Dirk Stroobandt

The roots of this ebook, and of the recent learn box that it defines, lie within the scaling of VLSI know-how. With gigahertz method clocks and ever­ accelerating layout and method options, interconnects became the restricting issue for either functionality and density. This expanding influence of interconnects at the procedure implementation area necessitates new instruments and analytic ideas to help the procedure clothier. With appreciate to modeling and research, the reaction to interconnect dom­ inance is evolutionary. Atomistic- and grain-level versions of interconnect constitution, and function types at multi-gigahertz working frequencies, jointly advisor the choice of better fabrics and strategy applied sciences (e. g. , damascene copper wires, low-permittivity dielectrics). formerly in­ major results (e. g. , mutual inductance) are additional into functionality mod­ els, as older approximations (e. g. , lumped-capacitance gate load types) are discarded. even though, on the system-level and chip making plans point, the mandatory reaction to interconnect dominance is innovative. Convergent layout flows don't require in simple terms allotted RLC line types, repeater information, unifi­ cations with extraction and research, and so forth. fairly, concerns corresponding to wiring layer task, and early prediction of the source and function envelope for the method interconnect (in specific, according to statistical types of the procedure interconnect structure), additionally turn into serious. certainly, system-level interconnect prediction has emerged because the enabler of more desirable interconnect modeling, less expensive method architectures, and extra efficient layout technology.
