DescriptionCell EM aware design optimization is for validating the reliability condition inside cells while chip implementation. Design constraints for each cell types for satisfying reliability conditions can be characterized in the liberty as maximum allowable toggle rate. When the cell EM optimization is enabled, P&R tool is taking it as design constraint and fixing violations during CTS and routing. Our study shows that we achieve about 30% cell violation reduction with cell EM aware design flow.
