In-Design Rail Analysis Is A Beautiful Thing

As a long time designer, ASIC flows amaze me and making them better is my goal. Although a very complex and intricate process, each part of the ASIC flow abstracts the complexity underneath it to ultimately create silicon that could end up in your smartwatch, your electric vehicle, or the latest cell phone – how amazing! Consumers concerns include product reliability and robustness, which brings me to the topic of power integrity and how to best build robustness into silicon – a very beautiful thing.
