Developing LSIs with EMI suppression, particularly for use in automobiles, is important for improving warranties and customer acquisition. First, we describe that the measures against EMI noise caused by a X'tal oscillator are important. Next, we present a practical method for analyzing the noise with models of the inside and outside of a chip. In addition, we propose a within-chip measure against EMI noise that takes chip cost into account. The noise is suppressed by using an appropriate resistance and capacitance on the power line. Simulation results demonstrated the method's effectiveness in suppressing noise.
