On-chip variation (OCV)

Accounting for on-chip variation (OCV) has become a critical factor in assuring timing closure for nanometer-scale ICs and avoiding over-pessimistic margins.

Confronting chip assembly challenges

Until recently, hierarchical design flows have been favored for the implementation of multi-million gate SOCs. However the rapid increases in design size brought on by nanometer process geometries have seen engineers seek to cope with the inherently block-based nature of such flows by seeking greater concurrency between the block implementation and chip assembly stages in […]
