PVT Monitoring IP

Cadence® Monitoring IP is a series of IP derived from our ADC targeted for monitoring 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 DVFS (Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling) 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.

Benefits

  • Build in one temperature cell
  • Up to eight inputs sampled at 1MSPS with higher sample rate option also available
  • Easy integration: low non-restrictive metal stacks and self-contained analog macro design
  • Companion to all Cadence IP
  • Silicon-proven solution at leading-edge nodes
