Choosing the best Standard Cell Library without falling into the traps of traditional benchmarking methods
 
Andrea Bonzo
Dolphin Integration
Assessing the comparative performances of several Standard Cell Libraries in a reliable way is a tricky project as it deals with statistical issues.

The methodology traditionally used in the industry to benchmark Standard Cell Libraries is the so-called “cell-by-cell” approach. It consists in taking one or two basic cells, such as a NAND2 and/or a FLIP-FLOP, and comparing their area, dynamic power consumption, leakage and speed. This method has three major drawbacks: more >>
