The Art of Timing Closure

The Art of Timing Closure

Author: Khosrow Golshan Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/08/2020

The Art of Timing Closure is written using a hands-on approach to describe advanced concepts and techniques using Multi-Mode Multi-Corner (MMMC) for an advanced ASIC design implementation. It focuses on the physical design, Static Timing Analysis (STA), formal and physical verification. The scripts in this book are based on Cadence (R) Encounter System (TM). However, if the reader uses a different EDA tool, that tool's commands are similar to those shown in this book. The topics covered are as follows: Data Structures Multi-Mode Multi-Corner Analysis Design Constraints Floorplan and Timing Placement and Timing Clock Tree Synthesis Final Route and Timing Design Signoff Rather than go into great technical depth, the author emphasizes short, clear descriptions which are implemented by references to authoritative manuscripts. It is the goal of this book to capture the essence of physical design and timing analysis at each stage of the physical design, and to show the reader that physical design and timing analysis engineering should be viewed as a single area of expertise. This book is intended for anyone who is involved in ASIC design implementation -- starting from physical design to final design signoff. Target audiences for this book are practicing ASIC design implementation engineers and students undertaking advanced courses in ASIC design.

Design Automation for Differential MOS Current-Mode Logic Circuits

Author: Stephane Badel, Yusuf Leblebici Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/07/2020

Design Automation for Differential MOS Current-Mode Logic Circuits provides a very detailed and comprehensive analysis of fundamental MCML circuits, their design and performance optimization under competing constraints such as output drive capability, power dissipation, noise margin, and silicon area. A systematic methodology is presented to build efficient MCML standard-cell libraries, and a complete top-down design flow is shown to implement complex systems using such building blocks. As such, Design Automation for Differential MOS Current-Mode Logic Circuits presents one of the first-ever top-down design approaches using differential cells, for high performance and low noise operation.

Automated Hierarchical Synthesis of Radio-Frequency Integrated Circuits and Systems

Automated Hierarchical Synthesis of Radio-Frequency Integrated Circuits and Systems

Author: Fabio Passos, Elisenda Roca, Rafael Castro-Lopez, Francisco V. Fernandez Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/07/2020

This book describes a new design methodology that allows optimization-based synthesis of RF systems in a hierarchical multilevel approach, in which the system is designed in a bottom-up fashion, from the device level up to the (sub)system level. At each level of the design hierarchy, the authors discuss methods that increase the design robustness and increase the accuracy and efficiency of the simulations. The methodology described enables circuit sizing and layout in a complete and automated integrated manner, achieving optimized designs in significantly less time than with traditional approaches.

Advanced Multiphasing Switched-Capacitor DC-DC Converters

Advanced Multiphasing Switched-Capacitor DC-DC Converters

Author: Nicolas Butzen, Michiel Steyaert Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/07/2020

This book gives a detailed analysis of switched-capacitor DC-DC converters that are entirely integrated on a single chip and establishes that these converters are mainly limited by the large parasitic coupling, the low capacitor energy density, and the fact that switched-capacitor converter topologies only have a fixed voltage conversion ratio. The authors introduce the concept of Advanced Multiphasing as a way to circumvent these limitations by having multiple out-of-phase parallel converter cores interact with each other to minimize capacitor charging losses, leading to several techniques that demonstrate record efficiency and power-density, and even a fundamentally new type of switched-capacitor topology that has a continuously-scalable conversion ratio. Provides single-source reference to the recently-developed Advanced Multiphasing concept; Enables greatly improved performance and capabilities in fully integrated switched-capacitor converters; Enables readers to design DC-DC converters, where multiple converter cores are put in parallel and actively interact with each other over several phases to improve their capabilities.
