Full-chip, transistor level reliability

Circuit reliability is a fast-growing market for IC design. Insight EDA has been a pioneer in the use of EDA automation to address design specific circuit reliability, bringing in new and more efficient circuit reliability analysis use models to the industry.

Today’s compelling solutions in this space are provided by 2 products

Insight Anlayzer

An extensible analysis platform that performs a wide variety of checks meant to detect issues that can impact circuit reliability. The Analyzer can easily handle large full-chip netlists performing detailed analysis at the transistor level. It is designed to find issues that are often missed by simulation and other traditional sign-off tools.

Insight Developer

Enables custom check development and check modifications. Signed checks can be run in Insight Analyzer.

Leakage solutions

Parasitic Leakage

  • Leakage through parasitic body diodes.
  • Bulk is not biased high enough (PMOS) or low enough (NMOS).
  • Long term reliability risk (device degradation over multiple cycles).
  • Short term reliability risk (latch up, damage).
  • Poor power performance (battery leakage).

Analog Gate Leakage

  • Leakage from power supply to ground, through MOSFET stacks.
  • Gate input floating, high impedance state.
  • Low reliability: Improper states, unreliable outcomes, etc.
  • High current drain.
digital-gate-leakage.png

Digital Gate Leakage

  • Category of power management / mismatch issues.
  • Input may be under driven, “missing level shifter”.
  • Input may be floating, high impedance state.
  • Low reliability: Improper states, unreliable outcomes, etc.
  • High current drain.
