White Paper: A Practical Methodology for Calculating IR Drop Targets for Advanced Designs
IR drop is a key factor affecting SoC performance, but few documented strategies for the fundamental and important task of setting the ideal IR drop target as early as possible in the chipís physical design cycle are readily available.
Developed by Synopsys Professional Services and based on experience gained through dozens of chip tapeouts, this FREE whitepaper offers design guidance by analyzing the components that influence IR drop. It describes a methodology for determining realistic IR drop targets including a practical example demonstrating IR drop calculations for a typical 130-nm SoC using a 1.2V power supply.
Synopsys is pleased to make this paper available to its customers and prospective customers, free of charge. Click here to view Outline.
