With the release of DDR4, memory interface analysis shifted from traditional setup/hold to a mask-based approach. This drove EDA tools to develop new post-processing and compliance checking techniques, along with new methodologies to go along with them. LPDDR4 reduced margins by dropping the associated supply voltage, and LPDDR4X exacerbates this even further, making power-aware SI analysis essential, impacting extraction and modeling methods. For high-reliability applications, it also becomes desirable to perform bit error rate (BER) analysis, further perturbating traditional approaches. TI will present some of the challenges they have faced in this new analysis world, and the methodologies they have adopted to address them.
