To date, the probabilistic approach is in widespread use to analyze the power dissipation of digital circuits. The goal of the present work is twofold. First, b present a method in providing an evaluation package of signals' probabilities and transition densities that can he applied at different specification levels with more 01' less accuracy. A first(More)
Among other threats, secure components are subjected to physical attacks whose aim is to recover the secret information they store. Most of the work carried out to protect these components generally consists in developing protections (or countermeasures) taken one by one. But this " countermeasure-centered " approach drastically decreases the performance of(More)
— The verification of timed digital circuits is an important issue. These circuits are composed by logical gates, each of them being associated with propagation delays. The analysis of such circuits is necessary to identify critical path and adjust the clock period of the circuit or to determine the stability period of input/ouput signals. These circuits(More)
Crosstalk noise evaluation consists in analysing theeffect of the transition of a signal - called aggressor - onits neighbours - called victims. This evaluation is basedon a model that estimates the peak noise produced oneach victim. However, from a victim's point of view, notall its aggressors are able to make a transition at thesame time. Thus,(More)
1 In deep submicron technologies, the verification task has to cover some new issues to certify the correctness of a design. The noise produced by crosstalk couplings is one of these emerging problems. In this paper, we propose a model to evaluate the peak value of the noise injected on a signal when its neighboring signals make their transitions. This(More)
