Supplying proper voltage to all devices on an System on Chip (SoC) is critical to it’s operational reliability. Supply voltage noise is inherent to all ICs due to the variations in operating conditions and weaknesses in the design of the power grid. A simulation driven analysis platform such as ANSYS RedHawk can provide the ability to analyze the supply voltage variations under various load conditions with sign-off accuracy and help designers reduce the overall noise. Typical applications of the ANSYS RedHawk platform are as follows:

  • Dynamic power noise for different functional conditions
  • Dynamic power noise during test modes of operation
  • Dynamic noise coupling during state transitions
  • Noise impact through the package and board
  • Noise modeling for FInFET designs and advanced technology nodes
