Solutions for Reducing the Impact of Power Straps on the Die Size
Three possibilities for reducing the impact of power straps on the die size are proposed here. They are then applied to the four previous examples to compare the core areas.
Now we'll rework the previous examples to derive new values for the metal power strap percentages and hence the increase in the size of the core.
The four examples being reworked are
