Abstract
  • This thesis presents Silencer!, a fully automated, schematic-driven tool for substrate noise coupling simulation and analysis. It has been integrated in the CADENCE DFII environment and seamlessly enables substrate coupling analysis in a standard mixed-signal design flow. Silencer! aids IC designers in the analysis of substrate noise coupling at different levels of hierarchy - from a level where only an approximate layout of the transistors is known to a level that incorporates various parasitic elements. It can be used for layout optimization to reduce substrate cross-talk noise between circuitry that injects noise into the substrate and other circuitry that is sensitive to it. Examples in a TSMC 0.35μm heavily doped process have been simulated and the results are in good agreement with measured fabricated chips.
