Interconnection Noise in VLSI Circuits

Buy
Interconnections are a most important design issue nowadays. Trends in the microelectronic industry are leading to unwanted interconnect effects, especially noise, becoming more important. This increasing importance is mainly due to three reasons: increasing integration, increasing signal frequency spectrum components, and increasing complexity.

The increase in integration and frequency of signals account for coupling problems between adjacent lines and a growing importance of parasitic components (capacitance and inductance). These two phenomena introduce analog effects in digital design, and are therefore direct causes of the noise problem.

The increase in complexity is perhaps more indirectly related to noise and the interconnection problem, but it is also very important. The drive to reduce the time to market of new electronic products make design verification extremely important and this pre-fabrication verification must be as accurate as possible to reduce the risk of having to redesign failed prototypes. However, the analog effects introduced by interconnections make traditional digital verification tools inappropriate for addressing the problem. Recently there have been many advances in interconnect simulation algorithms and efficient simulators can calculate solutions for sophisticated models. This is a very important subject and, with these algorithms and computer availability, accurate noise waveforms for a small number of coupled interconnections can nowadays be calculated easily. The problem is that from the point of view of the whole integrated system, the applicability of these sophisticated models is necessarily limited because today’s digital designs are so complex and the number of interconnections is so large that a complete electrical simulation of the whole chip is impossible, as it would take weeks or months.

Given this complexity problem for verification, there are two possible solutions: one is to simplify the interconnect models. The other is to address interconnect issues from the beginning of the design process, so they can be in some way implemented as design rules in the design flow.
