This project presents a Standard Cell Essentials analysis of the Apple A9 APL0898 application processor, built in Samsung's 14LPE high-k metal gate (HKMG) FinFET CMOS process. This analysis is focused on the GPU area. In this analysis we assessed the standard cell architecture by extracting and locating in the GPU layout multiple standard cells. We have extracted the routing density of the GPU digital logic library. Process and BEOL stack up and utilization have also been analyzed.
