The design of the clocked storage elements (CSEs) and associated local clocking circuitry is a critical consideration for modern microprocessor projects[1], and the POWER7™ chip[2], designed in a 45nm silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology, was no exception. The digital logic contained over 2M CSEs, and the design of these elements had a major impact not… CONTINUE READING
