Abstract:Clock distribution networks are essential to synchronous systems. The design of these networks affects the system performance dramatically and sometimes determines whether the chip can function properly or not. This thesis first describes in detail how a synchronous system works. Based on the design metrics such as the clock skew requirement and power requirement, different clock distribution network topologies are then presented, including the popular H tree, grid and serpentine structures. Finally, commonly used techniques for improving clock skew, jitter and power are discussed and conclusions are offered.
