Design tools for reliability analysis
Recent progress in EDA tools allows IC designs to be accurately verified with consequent improvements in yield and performance through reduced guard bands. This paper will present a tools perspective, including the primary effects such as HCI, NBTI and EM for which EDA tools are available, types of tools (dynamic simulation vs. static rule checking) and necessary reliability infrastructure and flows that have been working in practice. Finally, developing areas and future opportunities will be addressed. Categories and Subject Descriptors B.7.2 [Hardware]: IC; B.8.2 [Hardware]: Performance and Reliability; J.6 [Computer Applications]: CAD General Terms Design, Performance, Algorithms, Reliability Keywords HCI, NBTI, EM, Reliability simulation, Design-in Reliability.
