SoC Power Grid Challenges
“How efficient is the power delivery network of an SoC, and how much are they overdesigning to avoid a multitude of problems?”
“The consumption of power and dissipation of heat within large SoCs has received a lot of attention recently, but that is only part of the issue. Power also has to be reliably delivered onto and around the system. This is becoming increasingly difficult, and new nodes are adding to the list of challenges.”
