Signal integrity/power integrity issues
Abstract:As semiconductor devices become more densely integrated on a single chip, complexity of packaging has also increased accordingly, which induces signal integrity and power integrity (SI/PI) issues. In order to efficiently capture the behavior of interconnects and address the SI/PI problems, fast and accurate modeling is required. Past research investigated a fast transient simulation algorithm called the Latency Insertion Method (LIM) and, based on its developed a novel circuit simulator called Alternating Direction Explicit LIM (ADE-LIM). This thesis reports on the simulation of circuit models for different structures including transmission lines and power distribution networks (PDNs), using LIM and ADE-LIM to have been simulated using the simulator to study multiple SI/PI problems. In addition, Monte Carlo simulation has been investigated to study the effect of random variation of circuit parameter on signal output.
