13 Logical Effort Chip designers face a bewildering array of choices What is the best circuit topology for a function? How many stages of logic give least delay? How wide should the transistors be? Logical effort is a method to make these decisions Uses a simple model of delay Allows backoftheenvelope calculations Helps make rapid comparisons between alternatives Emphasizes remarkable symmetries Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 3

40 Delay Estimation (cont.) 3 input NAND gate with it s gate and diffusion capacitances (assuming all nodes are contacted). Estimation at schematic levels will be different if you look at the layouts. Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 40
41 Layout models Good layout minimizes the diffusion area. 3 input NAND shown here, shares one diffusion contact, thus lowering the output capacitance by C. Contact diffusions are assumed. Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 4
42 Body effect & delay If A goes from 0 to while B, C and D are, then all the intermediate nodes in the pulldown chain have already been discharged and the top MOSFET sees only a small body effect. If D goes from 0 to while A, B and C are, then the intermediate nodes are all one V t below V dd and the upper MOSFETs see a larger body effect. Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 4
43 Circuit characterization & performance Delay estimation Simple RC model PenfieldRubenstein Model Delay minimization techniques Transistor sizing Wiring sizing Distributed drivers Driving large loads Wiring techniques Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 43

MadianVLSI 44
45 Wire sizing Wire length is determined by layout architecture, but we can choose wire width to minimize delay. width can vary with distance from driver to adjust the resistance which drives downstream capacitance. Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 45
46 Optimal wire sizing Widening the wire reduces the resistance, but increases its capacitance. Wire with minimum delay has an exponential taper. Optimal tapering improves delay by about 8%. Can approximate optimal tapering with a few rectangular segments. Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 46
47 Tapering of wiring trees Different branches of tree can be set to different lengths to optimize delay. Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 47
48 Spanning tree A spanning tree has segments that go directly between sources and sinks. Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 48
49 Distributed driver Decrease output load capacitance Undistributed : C load = 8C g Distributed: C load = 6C g Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 49
50 Driving large loads If large loads have to be driven, the delay may increase drastically. Large loads are output capacitances, clock trees, etc. t d = t inv (C L /C G ) Where t inv =is the average delay of a minimumsized inverter driving another minimum sized inverter, C L = load capacitance& C G = gate capacitance C L = 000C G, then t d = 000.t inv A possibility to reduce the delay, is to use a sequence of n scaled inverters, but not the optimum delay: C Load t d = t inv (40/)+ t inv (00/40) + t inv (000/00)= 50t inv Dr. Ahmed H. MadianVLSI 50
51 Driving large loads (cont.) We may decrease the delay by using larger transistors to decrease the resistance. Scaling transistors by factor S results in: R W L sca led sca led R S S sca led W L normal t r =.R scaled (C in + C load ) But scaling the transistor also affects the input capacitance of the transistor: C in,scaled = S.
