Charitable donation for first responses. We take a fresh look at the problems posed by deep submicron DSM geometries and re-open the investigation into how DSM effects are most likely to affect future design methodologies. This work demonstrates that an r-BEOL methodology can be applied at block level as well as chip level to provide performance and quality benefits while considering density constraints. For local interconnect we demonstrate that cross-talk is the major challenge which can be addressed by selectively using larger drivers to reduce cross-talk noise when necessary. Clock-cycle estimation and test challenges for future microprocessors. This approach results in the generation of a representative strawman technology that is used in conjunction with analytical model simulation tools and empirical design data to obtain a realistic picture of the future of circuit design.
A Novel VLSI Layout Fabric for Deep Sub-Micron Applications
System-level design and configuration management for run-time reconfigurable devices. Global interconnect is commonly regarded as a key potential bottleneck to the advancing performance of high-speed integrated circuits. No cleanup reason has been specified. The proposed multi-threading is enabled by the use of a distributed instruction memory organization with a minimal hardware overhead.
Getting to the Bottom of Deep Submicron II: a global wiring paradigm (1999)
Therefore, it is more beneficial to route the global clock network on package. This chapter introduces one of the core contributions of the book which helps improve the energy efficiency of the register file.

The initial power distribution is refined progressively from early mode to final placement and layout. These violations are used to hand an updated specification to synthesis. Results indicate that the range of inductive effects expands for scaled processes to include more and more of the useful wirelength spectrum for a design. Up to 6 Cu wiring levels are built at minimum metal-contacted pitch of 0. The expression from  is given here and describes an interval of wirelengths where inductive effects are import Stochastic net length distributions for global interconnects in a heterogeneous system-on-a-chip. Based on the interconnect scaling scenario presented here aspect ratio of 1.
