The voltage monitor provides the means for advanced node IC developers to accurately measure core supply domain voltages on 16nm digital MOS devices. It is specifically targeted to enable high performance Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) schemes as well as provide a means for accurate IR drop analysis. The monitor is capable of monitoring multiple supply domains and can be used to generate low voltage alarms as well as providing real-time supply data. Using such monitors embedded within SoC (System on Chip) designs allows for greater dynamic performance optimisation as sensing die temperature, detecting logic speed and monitoring voltage supply levels can be used intelligently to vary system clock frequencies and the voltage levels of supply domains.
