About this book

The book provides a comprehensive overview of electromigration and its effects on the reliability of electronic circuits. It introduces the physical process of electromigration, which gives the reader the requisite understanding and knowledge for adopting appropriate counter measures. A comprehensive set of options is presented for modifying the present IC design methodology to prevent electromigration. Finally, the authors show how specific effects can be exploited in present and future technologies to reduce electromigration’s negative impact on circuit reliability.

About the authors

Jens Lienig is the director of the Institute of Electromechanical and Electronic Design at Dresden University of Technology, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in the field of computer-aided physical design of multi-chip modules and was employed as a researcher at University of Virginia, Charlottesville and Concordia University, Montreal. Afterwards he worked as project manager at Tanner Research, Inc. and Robert Bosch GmbH. His main research subjects are design of electronic systems and electronic design automation. He is a member of IEEE.

Matthias Thiele is a scientific assistant at Dresden University of Technology, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in the field of electromigration. Currently he works on the reliability of electronic and mechatronic systems.

Reviews

“This unique book provides the fundamental science necessary for a sound grounding from which to make practical use of the complete and indispensable application-oriented information regarding the electromigration-aware design of electronic systems. It is a foundational reference for today’s design professionals, as well as for the next generation of engineering students.” (Prof. Worthy Martin, University of Virginia)

“This is a long-awaited book bridging the design and reliability methodologies imperative for generating robust and high-performing semiconductor devices. A deep insight into physics of the electromigration induced degradation of on-chip interconnect components as well as explaining a design specific failure development are beneficial for both the chip-design and materials engineering communities.” (Dr. Valeriy Sukharev, D2S Calibre Division of Mentor, a Siemens Business)

“As digital electronic circuits scale down, it is getting increasingly difficult to maintain digital abstractions against a variety of physical phenomena, such as electromigration. This book summarizes our current understanding of electromigration and how its effects can be moderated in practice. Particularly important and valuable are techniques that can address electromigration in modern automated design flows.” (Prof. Igor Markov, University of Michigan)

“This timely book builds a fundamental knowledge of electromigration as well as discussing methods for designing robust integrated circuits. It covers electromigration, methodologies for electromigration-aware design for analog and digital circuits, and methods for mitigating electromigration during the physical design, all in-depth. Rarely, one can find a book with such scope and such practical applications. This book is an excellent resource for new and experienced IC designers.” (Prof. Laleh Behjat, University of Calgary)

“Good to have this book that walks the readers through a wonderful journey from understanding the basics and background of electromigration in circuit reliability to its physical process and the counter measures in physical design. It can help greatly people in different disciplines to understand these important topics and work towards better solutions in future technologies.” (Prof. Evangeline F.Y. Young, The Chinese University of Hong Kong)
