Process Monitoring & Detection

The process variability of advanced CMOS technologies has become a significant factor to the speed and power performance of SoC devices. Moortec’s Process Detector (PD) will allow an IC to self-determine its own manufactured process characteristics, providing information for system optimisation on a PER DIE basis. Moortec’s embedded PD IP addresses the following applications:

  • Detect silicon speed type (FAST/SLOW/TYP)
  • System performance optimisation
  • Age monitoring 
  • Critical voltage and timing analysis

The Process Detector is easy to integrate, compatible with standard CMOS processes, and has several digital interfacing options for easy control and data capture.
