In this paper we present a tool based approach for an aging-aware design method. Extending the g<sup>m</sup>/I<sup>D</sup> sizing method by operating point-dependent degradation caused by BTI and HCD enables an innovative design flow. This design flow considers performance characteristics for a fresh circuit and also those of a degraded circuit at design(More)
In this paper a tool based on the g<inf>m</inf>/I<inf>D</inf>-methodology is presented to provide information on operating point-dependent degradation in integrated circuits caused by NBTI and HCI during early design stages. The advantage of the presented GMID-Tool is that it does not require any further SPICE or aging simulations after the extraction of(More)
