12 © IMEC 2010 ANALOG I/O ▸ Dedicated 3.3V analog power and ground ▸ Analog input and output ▸ Same protection device used as in digital I/O  Full chip ESD behavior initially not good enough (~ 500 V HBM) due to broken ring  ESD optimization (bulk connections, distances, marker layers) increases performance beyond 2KV HBM 12 GEERT THYSAMICSA20106 SEPTEMBERESA/ESTEC NOORDWIJK (NL)

14 © IMEC 2010 PHYSICAL VERIFICATION ▸ Default checks: DRC, LVS, ANT, ERC ▸ Extra ‘RAD’ check: -Digital layout = standard cell library, well defined flow => correct-by-design/flow -Analog layout = full custom=> prone to mistakes during cell layout or integration on top level -Checks for  NMOS ELT compliance  Presence of guard bands  Forbidden polysilicon routing 14 GEERT THYSAMICSA20106 SEPTEMBERESA/ESTEC NOORDWIJK (NL)

15 © IMEC 2010 CONCLUSIONS ▸ KNUT ASIC demonstrates the feasibility of a Mixed Signal design flow for Space Applications with the DARE library ▸ The digital-on-top approach needs descriptions of the analog blocks for doing P&R, STA, IR-drop and power analysis ▸ ESD performance is proven ▸ RAD check gives added value in mixed-mode designs 15 GEERT THYSAMICSA20106 SEPTEMBERESA/ESTEC NOORDWIJK (NL)
