This contribution deals with the optimal placement of the decoupling capacitances on the gridded power delivery network of a multichip assembly with interposer. The optimization is performed by means of a nature-inspired algorithm of the genetic class. Different placement strategies are considered and compared.

Abstract

This contribution deals with the optimal placement of the decoupling capacitances on the gridded power delivery network of a multichip assembly with interposer. The optimization is performed by means of a nature-inspired algorithm of the genetic class. Different placement strategies are considered and compared. The cost function is based on the evaluation of the input impedance looked into the power and ground rails of the power distribution network and its comparison with a user-defined mask.
