Accurate estimation of design metrics in deep submicron circuits: RLC interconnect delay and crosstalk induced power
The advent of the deep submicron (DSM) era was accompanied by a number of challenging effects that severely impact the performance of modern integrated circuits. In this thesis, we present models and methods for the correct ...
Modeling and variability aware design techniques for mixed signal systems
The tremendous advancement in the field of integrated circuit manufacturing achieved in the past decade can largely be attributed to the successful continuous scaling of CMOS technology combined with the increase in the ...
Compact models for nanophotonic structures and on -chip interconnects
Over the last few years, scaling in deep submicron technologies has shifted the paradigm from device-dominated to interconnect-dominated design methodology. Consequently, there is an increasing interest towards the ...
PVT variation-aware timing analysis and adaptive circuit techniques for robust synchronous integrated circuits
Over the last few years, considerable variability in deep submicron integrated circuits has become a major concern for designers since the actual performance can vary drastically from the predicted performance leading to ...
Modeling and design of carbon nanotube interconnect for mixed-signal VLSI applications
In future nanoscale integrated circuits, process technology scaling coupled with increasing operating frequencies will exacerbate the resistivity, electromigration, and delay problems that plague interconnect in today's ...
