During various stages of hardware design, different types of control signals get introduced; clock, reset are specified and connected at the RTL stage whereas signals like scan enable, isolation enable, power switch enable get added to implemented devices later in the flow. The quality of Top Level Control Signals (TLCS) has a direct impact on the quality of static verification which is used to verify the intended connectivity and functionality of fan-out networks corresponding to TLCS… CONTINUE READING
