NVIDIA GP104-300-A1 GPU (GTX1070Ti)

Circuit Analysis Report

Charge Pump and Related Circuits of the PLL



Images from the report

The NVIDIA GTX1070Ti GPU is based on NVIDIA Pascal™ GPU architecture. The analyzed GP104-300-A1 GPU die is found on a GEFORE(R) GTX1070Ti WINDFORE 8G gaming graphics card.

From the report’s design overview:

We identified two types of PLL blocks on the GP104-300-A1 GPU die: one with a coil inductor and one without a coil inductor. The analyzed PLL is of the latter type: the PLL without a coil inductor. The same PLL blocks are visible on different locations of the GP104-300-A1 die.
 

Similar PLL blocks are also found on other NVIDIA GPU dies, such as GTX 1080, Quadro P4000, Quadro P5000 and Tesla P4. This partial circuit analysis report includes a selected portion of the PLL block: Charge pump, direct control signals of the charge pump and an LDO regulator that provides power supplies to the charge pump and most of the PLL circuits on the GP104-300-A GPU die.

The partial circuit analysis report is organized hierarchically at the transistor-level. The GP104-300-A1 GPU die is made in TSMC 14-metal, 16nm FinFET process with a die size of 19.3mm by 16.4mm… Unlock the full report
