This paper presents a novel approach to logical and thermal co-simulation of ASIC circuits. Numerous electrothermal simulator implementations are present nowadays, but these simulators approach the electro-thermal simulation domain by co-simulating electronic and thermal effects at a low structural level. This approach has the advantage of being very accurate but at the expense of simulation time. In this paper we provide an alternative way to simulate standard cell ASIC circuits electrically… CONTINUE READING
