    Magic Blue Smoke is a blog dedicated to discussing the challenges of low power ASIC Design

    I have worked in the VLSI industry for 14 years as a digital IC designer. My recent work has been focused on low-power challenges associated with multi-voltage/
    multi-supply designs. The goal of this blog is to open a free exchange of ideas with regards to low power. Please participate!

Multi-Voltage/Power Gated design and LVS

Posted by Godwin Maben on August 2nd, 2010

 

Some interesting observation while running LVS on a power gated or a MV design. Here is quick preview on the problem description

As shown in the picture above if LVS is run on a Verilog netlist generated without bulk pin connections, bulk connections may not be correct from electrical perspective.

More on how typically designers handle this in my next post.
