  11. Collaborative Development Relative Performance ARM IP + GF Design Expertise + EDA Vendor = Performance/Power Breakthrough 2.0 1.3 • Design/Technology co-optimization • Rapid iteration based on close collaboration 14XM CortexTMA9 Dual-Core 14XM-9T 28SLP-12T 62% Power Reduction 0.6 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1.0 Relative Total Power 61% Performance improvement

  12. Double Patterning Impact on Extractionand Timing SignoffMust account for modeling of mask overlap Decomposition One Drawn Level Two Masks Mask Shift Methodology Double Pattern Corner Methodology

  13. P&R Implementation FlowsIn Design fixing of DPT odd cycles is a key productivity feature • Odd-cycle violation is a scenario where decomposition cannot resolve colors without color conflict Pull down Menu from Encounter In Design Odd-Cycle Fixing with PVS Violation due to odd-cycle

  14. Advanced Node Variability and Margining ConsiderationsTraditional De-rating Inadequate at Advanced nodes • Modeling and Margining for Random Device Variability • Design and technology trends • Variability increasing as gate area scales down • Fmax increasing with technology scaling • Much more accurate variability modeling and margining methodology required • Industry has progressively moved to more accurate modeling of variability optimistic here Single derate of 10% pessimistic here • Traditional On-Chip Variation (OCV) derates breaks down below 65nm • Optimistic on short paths and pessimistic on long paths • Derate depends on path depth, location, PVT, cell type • AOCV provides more accurate margining methodology for 65nm and below, but …

  15. AOCV does not model variation on Slew/load, nor Hold Variation • SOCV addresses AOCV shortcomings in graph-based STA • Liberty Variation Format to address shortcomings in modeling the impact of input slew and output load on cell delay variation: • LVF models variation as a first order effect: variation is dependent upon same factors as baseline cell delays (arc/slew/load/cell/PVT) • Statistical Hold method under standardization on Liberty TAB • Variation dependence on input slew/output load can be significant and must be modeled

  16. EDA Foundry Collaboration essential for Advanced Nodes • Open Collaboration part of GLOBALFOUNDRIES DNA • Technology Design-Flow Co-development • New Challenges to tackle • FINFETs : Will Miller Effect swamp our .Lib models? • FINFETs: Will EM/IR solutions hold up? • SADP Decomposition: New sources of variation • Margins: LVF rollout
