# OpenROAD and OpenPOWER - Microwatt core for low-power ASIC applications

## OpenPOWER for Energy-efficient applications

The [OpenPOWER](https://openpowerfoundation.org) microwatt processor is an open-source soft process core implementation of the IBM [POWER ISA](https://openpowerfoundation.org/specifications/isa/) architecture that is designed to be highly energy-efficient. This processor is an example of the growing trend of designing low-power processors that can be used in a variety of applications, including mobile devices, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and more.

### Microwatt
Microwatt is a multi-core processor capable of running at up to 2.3 GHz and using the Power ISA v3.0 specification. It can run on lower cost FPGAs. It has a memory management unit, privilege modes, interrupts, a floating-point unit, an interrupt controller and a level-2 cache, so that it can boot Linux.

The Microwatt processor was implemented using the [OpenROAD](https://theopenroadproject.org/) native design flow - [OpenROAD-flow-scripts](https://github.com/The-OpenROAD-Project/OpenROAD-flow-scripts) . It is available as part of the EDA cloud native solution in OpenPOWER. OpenROAD delivers an autonomous, No-Human-In-Loop, fully-integrated RTL-GDSII flow for the design of digital integrated circuits across a range of technologies. OpenROAD includes specific features for low power design that enabled the design to specification for Microwatt.

## Microwatt Design Flow using OpenROAD

The figures below show the OpenROAD flow using [OpenROAD-flow-scripts](https://github.com/The-OpenROAD-Project/OpenROAD-flow-scripts)

### OpenROAD High-level Flow

{{< image src="blog/openroad_image1.png" >}}

### OpenROAD Flow Scripts - A detailed Physical Implementation Flow

{{< image src="blog/openroad_image2.png" >}}

## Design Methodology

Microwatt was implemented using Skywater130nm (What production versions are supported- Is there a link to share about it? It consists of 6 macros and over 800K standard cells.

The hardware description for Microwatt was defined using Verilog in OpenPOWER. The RTL was synthesized in OpenROAD using Yosys to obtain a power-efficient mapping. [OpenSTA](https://github.com/The-OpenROAD-Project/OpenSTA) is an integrated and incremental timing and power analysis engine built into OpenROAD.

### Synthesis
The OpenROAD flow uses a synthesized netlist from Yosys to transform the RTL into an elaborated design with corresponding technology mapped primitives to generate an optimized netlist based on the input on specified timing constraints. This netlist was used to create the floorplan for detailed physical implementation.

### Placement and Routing

#### Floorplan Import design

Microwatt has 6 macros that were placed using the automatic macro placement in ORFS.

- RAM512 1 392.925
- RAM32 1RW1R
- Multiply_add_64x64
- RAM32_1RW1R
- Microwatt_FP_DFFRFile
- Multiply_add_64x64

{{< image src="blog/openroad_image3.png" >}}

macro placement

### Power Distribution

There are 5 metal layers in total in Microwatt. Metal 1 is horizontal and M2 is vertical followed by M3, M4 and M5 in horizontal direction. Power distribution is using M1, M4 and M5. The M1 layer is horizontal on the standard cell rails to enable power for the standard cells. VIA2 and VIA3 power vias are dropped. M4 power stripes and M5 power stripes are drawn. An alternate pattern of VSS and VDD pattern is followed

The figure below shows the PDN grid generated.

This is the complete PDN of the floor plan.

{{< image src="blog/openroad_image4.png" >}}

### Placement

Global Placement places standard cells to minimize wire length and avoid congestion during routing. Detailed placement further legalizes standard cell placement to remove overlaps and fix orientation for optimal routing. This step also includes the use of the resizer to optimize timing using techniques like buffer insertion, sizing, pin swapping etc.

#### How was timing optimization done using the resizer repair commands?

Using resizer commands the following is done at the placement step. The details are available in 3_4_resizer.log

1) 51 input buffers are added
2) 87 output buffers are added
3) 7237 buffers are added in 9711 nets
4) 23377 instances are resized

#### What tradeoffs were made for timing vs power?

We optimize for timing and less so for power. We do have some power recovery features in development that should be available soon.

#### Where is the static IR estimation report?

In 6_report.log when using ORFS

#### Did you run a simulation for power analysis?

We can provide a VCD (toggle counts) from simulation for improved accuracy. OR doesn't do simulation itself.

#### What kind of signoff was used to verify final timing and power (PrimeTime, Calibre etc.)

We have not done any signoff for final timing and power using Prime Time & Calibre.Only OpenROAD flow is being executed.

### Physical Verification

Once the physical layout (i.e., the GDS file) is complete, the design is ready for final verification and sign-off. This involves running a series of tests to ensure that the design meets all of the necessary requirements and specifications. Any issues that are found can be addressed, and the design can be re-synthesized and re-implemented until it meets all of the necessary criteria.

Finally, the design is ready for fabrication. The GDSII layout file is sent to a foundry, where the physical chip is manufactured. Once the chip is fabricated, it can be assembled into a larger system or device, such as a mobile phone or IoT device.

As a result, it is possible to create highly efficient and effective microwatt processors that can be used in a variety of different devices and applications, from mobile phones to IoT devices and beyond. The combination of the OpenPOWER microwatt processor and the OpenROAD design flow represents a powerful toolset for designers looking to create low-power, high-performance processors for modern electronics.

## The OpenPOWER HUB - An open, collaborative community enabling OpenPOWER

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Centered around testing, development, and hardware integration on OpenPOWER hardware, the [OpenPOWER Foundation HUB](https://openpowerfoundation.org/hub/) (OPF HUB) is the place to begin or continue your next software project, whatever it may be. The OPF HUB resources are free to use, open, setup, reconfigurable, numerous, and backed by a dedicated HUB Special Integration Group. The HUB is a collaborative effort between the [OpenPOWER Foundation](https://openpowerfoundation.org/), Oregon State University [Center for Quantitive Life Sciences](https://cqls.oregonstate.edu/) (CQLS), Oregon State University [Open Source Lab](https://osuosl.org/) (OSUOSL), [University of Oregon](https://openpowerfoundation.org/hub/universityoforegon/), [VanTosh](https://openpowerfoundation.org/hub/vantosh/) and [Raptor Computing](https://openpowerfoundation.org/hub/raptorcomputingsystems/). Together with other OpenPOWER Foundation members, we form the [HUB Special Integration Group](https://openpowerfoundation.org/groups/hub/) (SIG), a group tasked solely with supporting and enabling others in starting on or porting projects to the POWER architecture and OpenPOWER platform.

The OPF HUB is a community and idea centered around a diverse set of people, platforms, and OpenPOWER hardware. It is a worldwide collection of users, providers, and SIG members; host to a diverse range of software, development stacks, operating systems, etc.; and of course, an ample collection of bleeding\-edge high performance computing (HPC) hardware, open for anyone to use and collaborate upon. The OPF HUB is not composed of the same hardware as the average cloud provider, because most clouds do not provide high end hardware like **OpenPOWER**. The systems that make up the OPF HUB are the same type of systems that went into the [Oak Ridge National Laboratory's 200 petaflop Summit supercomputer](https://www.olcf.ornl.gov/olcf-resources/compute-systems/summit/). The OPF HUB is also a community of people collaboratively engaging one another to develop, troubleshoot, plan, and push forward their own projects, as well as the OpenPOWER platform and idea.

The OPF HUB provided at OSU OSL includes access to bare metal machines, virtual machines (VMs), and Containers plus their orchestration/management. Users can interact with an OpenStack environment as well as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. All the OPF HUB hardware cannot easily be made ready to support everyone's next project without labor to manage, maintain, and make those resources readily available. We take pride in being able to provide the hardware resources for use, and have dedicated faculty researchers through the CQLS to help users access and make use of the OPF HUB.

The OpenPOWER HUB is an ever-changing resource that will continue to be upgraded with innovative technologies as they become available and meaningful to the world of HPC.

```
OPF FTS Talk
Time: 3:55pm 4:15pm
Location: Lisbon Congress Centre
```

The OpenPOWER Foundation will be sharing a talk with Jabil in the Future Technologies Symposium.

"Large Memory Server Design Overview"
Abstract:
With the advancement of AI workloads and their increasingly large data set requirements, the need for high memory capacity and density is becoming paramount for the industry. There have been advances in memory connectivity that promise to deliver solutions that will meet these needs. This specification shows a design that utilizes two of these technologies, OpenCAPI Memory Interface (OMI) and Compute Express Link (CXL), to deliver from 24TB to a potentially jaw-dropping 32TB of memory in an air-cooled, single socket OCP DC-MHS inspired 19 2U chassis. This design solution, a collaboration between the OpenPower Foundation, Jabil Inc.,Raptor Computing Systems, SAP, and Wooden Data Center, is currently in the design phase. In this specification, physical limitations, interconnects, and power/thermal constraints will be highlighted. The end goal would be to contribute this design specification to the OCP community.
