What is Static Timing Analysis in VLSI?

Static timing analysis (STA) is a way of evaluating a design’s timing performance by testing for timing violations along all conceivable paths. Dynamic simulation, which determines the whole behaviour of the circuit for a given set of input stimulus vectors, is another technique to do timing analysis. One of the tools for verifying design in […]

Statistical Static Timing Analysis: Accuracy in Circuit Performance

Statistical Static Timing Analysis: Enhancing Accuracy in Circuit Performance Evaluation As contemporary nanometer silicon technologies continue to shrink device and interconnect sizes, managing process and environmental variations has become increasingly challenging. This variability plays a critical role in developing complex system-on-chip (SoC) circuits. To address this, Statistical Static Timing Analysis (SSTA) emerges as a viable […]
