Accelerating Monte Carlo Analysis At Advanced Nodes

How to avoid overdesigning to accommodate PVT effects while still getting designs out on schedule.


Advanced-node designs have much larger variation, making it much more difficult to achieve high yields at these processes. But can you really afford to run thousands or even millions of statistical simulations to predict how well your design will meet its specs? Or overdesign to accommodate manufacturing variations? In this paper, we will introduce a fast Monte Carlo analysis technique that delivers foundry-certified metrics you can rely on to produce high-quality advanced-node designs and meet aggressive project schedules.
