Power Distribution Network Analysis for Layout Engineers

This webinar will provide an overview of Silvaco’s new reliability analysis tool InVar Prime. InVar Prime is an addition to the family of InVar power integrity signoff tools. It allows detection of potential issues in power distribution networks during layout planning and implementation and provides accurate estimates of IR-drop, current density distribution and supply network quality. This webinar will explain analysis required at the very initial stages of the design cycle and demonstrate benefits of early problem detection. Brief introduction to required input data and analysis flow will be provided as well.

What attendees will learn:

  • IR-drop with early layout data
  • Power network problems addressed by InVar Prime
  • Static and transient current density
  • Floorplanning with thermal analysis
    • Modeling of thermal conditions
  • Addressing capacity issues

Presenter:

Alex Samoylov, has over 20 years of experience in the physical implementation area including power, timing, and reliability analysis for standard cell and transistor level designs. Prior to this he was co-founder at Invarian. He has also held leadership positions in many tool development projects during his EDA career.

Mr. Samoylov received his M.S. in Computer Science from National Research University of Electronic Technology, Moscow, USSR.
