A gate array integrated circuit is provided, which includes first and second voltage supply rails and a row of P-channel type transistors and adjacent N-channel type transistors located between first and second voltage supply rails. Adjacent ones of the P-channel and N-channel transi
6748579 Method of using filler metal for implementing changes in an integrated circuit design June 8, 2004
A method is provided for fabricating an integrated circuit having a logical function. The method includes fabricating first and second routing layer masks and a first via mask. The first routing layer mask includes power supply segments and signal segments. The second routing layer mask
6559701 Method to reduce power bus transients in synchronous integrated circuits May 6, 2003
A method of reducing power rail transients on integrated circuits. The power rail transients are reduced by controlling clock skew in a manner which minimizes dI/dT current demands. The method provides that the phase of the clock to latches/flip flops is shifted in order to spread out th
6093214 Standard cell integrated circuit layout definition having functionally uncommitted base cells July 25, 2000
A method of forming a layout definition of a semiconductor integrated circuit includes generating a netlist of functionally committed standard cell instances and the electrical interconnections between the standard cell instances. The standard cell instances are then placed in a layout
