Fast Flip-Chip Pin-Out Designation Respin by Pin-Block Design and Floorplanning for Package-Board Codesign
Deep submicron effects drive the complication in designing chips, as well as in package designs and communications between package and board. As a result, the iterative interface design has been a time-consuming process. This paper proposes a novel and efficient approach to designating pinout for flip-chip BGA package when designing chipsets. The proposed approach can not only automate the assignment of more than 200 I/O pins on package, but also precisely evaluate package size which accommodates all pins with almost no void pin positions, as good as the one from manual design. Furthermore, the practical experience and techniques in designing such interface has been accounted for, including signal integrity, power delivery and routability. This efficient pin-out designation and package size estimation by pin-block design and floorplanning provides much faster turn around time, thus enormous improvement in meeting design schedule. The results on two real cases show that our methodology ...
