Here are the latest two episodes of "The Next Generation".
In episode 7, the team is starting to discover some real power problems. Multi-vt is no longer enough at 65nm, and pushing things off to the back-end is also no longer an option. Jay, the physical designer, proposes multi-supply multi-voltage, which freaks out the synthesis guys, and power shutoff, which freaks out the verification guys. Fortunately, nobody really believes any of this is real....
Episode 8 has Chip doing some research and discovering how real this problem is. He tries discussing it with his not-so-helpful AE, and she has some not-so-helpful suggestions.
Is any of this starting to look familiar?
