Key Applications for In-Chip Monitoring IP

Overview

Why embedding in-chip monitoring IP is an essential step to maximise performance and reliability and minimise power, or a combination of these objectives.

The latest SoCs on advanced semiconductor nodes especially FinFET, typically include a fabric of sensors spread across the die and for good reason. But why and what are the benefits? This article explores some of the key applications for In Chip monitoring and why embedding In Chip monitoring IP is an essential step to maximise performance and reliability and minimise power, or a combination of these objectives.


As SoC developers migrate to new smaller geometry nodes they enjoy considerable benefits of higher logic density, faster performance and lower power. However, the challenges also increase and need addressing in the light of the objectives to maximise performance, minimize power or optimize reliability or some combination of these, depending on the end application.
