Integrated circuits switching current modeling, measurement and power delivery network optimization


Kuifeng Hu


"Switching currents on the Integrated Circuits (ICs) power distribution network (PDN) are very often the ultimate source of a system level electromagnetic interference issue. Modeling and measurement of this switching current are critical for minimizing those problems. The first paper presented the design, fabrication and characterization of a balanced shielded miniature thin-film...The second paper investigated the coupling from IC unbalanced switching current to the TEM cell...The third paper presented a full chip level IC PDN model to predict the switching current behavior at chip level"--Abstract, page iv.
