Monitoring IP

Cadence® Monitoring IP is a series of IP, derived from our ADC, and targeted to monitor the status of sections of a system on chip (SoC) or ASIC. This series of IP is used to report the voltage level, temperature, and process variation inside the SoC/ASIC to the CPU.

Our Monitoring IP is a critical component in applications such as dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) for battery, power, or performance management. With a relatively small size and low power, these IP designs can be liberally placed across a large SoC/ASIC as needed. In newer nodes where process variation can vary significantly, Cadence Monitoring IP can assist in minimizing yield drops by compensating for voltage and process variation.
