22FDX Design Methodology Enabling Optimized Power Performance and Area for IoT and Mobile AP Designs

Ulrich Hensel


GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22FDX technology offers body biasing as a new optimization tool for designers to optimize power performance and area of their circuit. GLOBALFOUNDRIES and its IP eco-system partners have collaborated to develop a design platform that enables designers to take full advantage of these technology capabilities for low voltage IoT all the way to mobile application processor designs.

The talk will present benchmark implementation results that demonstrate the benefits of the 22FDX design platform for IoT and mobile application processor design points.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES' design guidelines and reference flows help the designer to easily adopt the 22FDX design platform. The talk will walk through the 22FDX specifics of the digital design flow and point out how to implement a digital design using body bias.
