On the Bend Minimization in Clock Tree Networks

Abstract

Vias in Clock Distribution Networks (CDNs) are one of the major sources of signal degradation and delay uncertainty. Also they may impact circuit reliability due to their sensitivity to process variations. With feature size reduction these variations will manifest themselves in adverse effects on clock skew and clock jitter. Therefore, via reduction becomes… (More)
