  • Publication number: 20200342156
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method of performing electromigration sign-off. The method includes determining a change in temperature due to joule heating from an RMS current of a first interconnect. The change in temperature due to joule heating is added to a change in temperature due to device self-heating to determine a first change in real temperature. A first average current limit is determined for the first interconnect using the first change in real temperature. A first average current on the first interconnect is compared to the first average current limit to determine if a first electromigration violation is present on the first interconnect. A second average current is determined for a second interconnect using a second change in real temperature. The second average current is compared to a second average current limit to determine if a second electromigration violation is present on the second interconnect.
