Seeking to Address Advanced Nanometer Nodes Semiconductors Electro-Thermal Modeling and Optimization
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GBT Technologies Inc. (OTC PINK: GTCHD) ("GBT” or the “Company”) is researching to develop Electro-Thermal Aware design environment electronic design automation (EDA) technology for integrated circuits (IC). Increasing power densities, cost and an associated greater utilization of advanced nodes semiconductors are making electro-thermal analysis and simulation a crucial reliability aspect. The ever-growing packing density and power consumption factors are significantly affecting IC’s design’s electro-thermal behavior. The increasing variability of processes parameters, particularly in advanced nanometer technologies has resulted in a larger impact of the substrate and metal line temperatures and on the reliability and performance of the devices. Research data shows that more than 50% of all IC failures are related to thermal issues. GBT is researching to develop an Electro-Thermal Aware design environment for integrated circuits with the goal of addressing thermal impact early during the design stages. The design environment is planned to perform a microchip’s Electro-Thermal analysis to detect hot areas in the physical layout. The analysis is planned to be running in the background as the engineers are designing the IC’s circuits and layout. The goal is to create the IC’s thermal map on-the-fly and alerting designers for possible hot-spots that should be eliminated to keep the chip’s optimal temperature. The interactive analysis will be responding to the chip’s circuit’s power variations in real-time, with the goal of accurately predicting the die temperature including neighboring device effect. The goal of the system will be to generate thermal maps interactively pointing to heated zones that may cause performance issues or lead to chip’s failure. The system will simulate the IC’s during peak power consumptions to identify critical area that may overheat. High operating temperature of a microchip will significantly lower its reliability and performance. It is the goal of an Electro-Thermal Aware Design environment to keep the chip’s die at the optimal operating temperature during operation, ensuring high performance, superior reliability, optimized power management and long life.
“It is GBT’s goal to determine the feasibility of an Electro-Thermal Aware Design environment for integrated circuits that can be implemented early in the design stage and therefore create Thermal Friendly design at the point of construction. It is expected that the system will start with Library Cells design, which are the basic layout blocks. The goal of the software is to achieve block level, homogenous thermal dissipation and, therefore, less current consumption and better performance.
As today’s electronic designs are constantly driven by the demand to reduce in size and provide faster performance, ultimately they translate into high power densities, higher operating temperatures and reduced reliability. Furthermore, local hot spots, which have much higher temperatures compared to the average die temperature, are becoming more common in advanced nodes and power circuits. Elevated temperatures are a major contributor in lowering the IC’s performance and reliability. We believe an efficient IC’s thermal design could directly impact the overall system performance and reliability. We are already addressing reliability with our Epsilon EDA technology and now expanding into the Electro-Thermal domain since it is a crucial reliability factor. We believe finding an optimized solution, early during the IC’s design stage, is the most efficient solution to keep the IC’s operating temperatures in the optimal zone for best performance and superior reliability. A microchip’s electro-thermal map should be “green” only and our technology will eliminate the “red” and “orange” zones. Given the immense size of modern chips, we plan to utilize our machine learning technology in our research. Reliable thermal assessments require a combination of efficient analytical calculations using thermal specifications, empirical analysis and thermal modeling. We believe that the key for efficient Electro-Thermal behavior is an early analysis and correction to ensure high performance, low power consumption and long life of integrated circuits projects.” stated Danny Rittman, the Company’s CTO.
