In any chip design, large, rapidly changing currents in a circuit block can cause large inductive voltage changes in a low resistance power grid. These voltage changes propagate across the chip with very little attenuation causing timing errors, increased stress in thin gate oxides and, in extreme cases, complete circuit failure. This article from, by a device physicist and simulation expert, provides designers with an overview of the techniques needed to analyze resistive, inductiv
