Designing SoC Power Networks

 Designing SoC Power Networks\ “The current drawn by a 3D stacked device is expected to be much higher than that of a 2D SoC chip,” says Hem Hingarh, vice president of engineering for Synapse Design. Hingarh is concerned about the number of bumps allocated just for the PDN. “This has a large impact on package costs and in some cases may be equal to, or larger than, SoC die cost.”

Jul 14, 2016
SoC Power Grid Challenges Design is about achieving the desired goals at the lowest possible cost. “The PDN must provide a low impedance return path for signal currents and maintain proper functionality,” says Hem Hingarh, vice president of engineering for Synapse Design. The problem is then switching noise. “To reduce switching noise, decoupling caps are usually added with placement distributed at various locations on the die. So in design you have to select the number of de-caps, their value to keep good performance for the power network, and where they should be placed?”

DVCon 2014

Join Synapse Design at DVCon 2014  on March 3-6 at Doubletree, San Jose.  Visit our booth to learn more about our expertise and service offerings in the areas of design and verification.

This year, Stan Krolikoski, 2014 General Chair  shares his thoughts on the conference and exhibition. 
“DVCon continues to be the premier conference for design and verification engineers of all experience levels.   Compared to larger more general conferences, DVCon affords attendees a concentrated menu of technical sessions—tutorials, papers, poster sessions and panels—focused on design and verification hot topics.  Further, besides participation in high quality technical sessions, DVCon attendees have the opportunity to take part in the many informal but often intense technical discussions that pop up around the conference venue. Finally, DVCon attendees continue to have access to the advanced vendors of design and verification tools, IP/ VIP and service that exhibit at the conference.

For DVCon 2014, we have sought to explicitly expand the conference’s focus from simply being on “Design and Verification” to a more specific focus on hot topic areas that are critical to our conference’s attendees, viz.
  • System Level Design
  • Verification & Validation
  • IP Reuse and Design Automation
  • Mixed-Signal Design and Verification
  • Lower Power Design and Verification

“For vendors of design and verification tools, IP/VIP and services, the choice to exhibit at DVCon 2014 is an easy one.  Put simply, DVCon attendees are among the best and brightest in the design and verification world.  They understand that the products that are exhibited at this conference can potentially help them do their jobs better, and so they are ready to get in depth demos of those products.  This is in contrast with larger conferences, where products that address design and verification issues can get lost among presentations of entire design flows among a general atmosphere of glitz and glamour.  By contrast, the DVCon exhibit is kept deliberately “cozy” to facilitate one-on-one discussions between vendors and the expert users that attend the conference.  Thus, exhibiting at DVCon is an excellent way to make an extended contact with expert design and verification engineers-- the very engineers that often help direct purchasing decisions in their organizations.”
