In a gate-level monolithic 3D IC (M3D), all the transistors in a single logic gate occupy the same tier, and gates in different tiers are connected using nano-scale monolithic inter-tier vias. This design style has the benefit of the superior power-performance quality offered by flat implementations (unlike block-level M3D), and zero total silicon area overhead compared to 2D (unlike transistor-level M3D). In this paper we develop, for the first time, a complete RTL-to-GDSII design flow for… CONTINUE READING
