Blade and razor: cell and interconnect delay analysis using current-based models

  title={Blade and razor: cell and interconnect delay analysis using current-based models},
  author={John F. Croix and Martin D. F. Wong},
In order to adequately account for nanometer effects during timing analysis, archaic standard cell models must be replaced. Simplifying assumptions used during characterization, such as nearly linear voltage inputs or lumped-capacitance loads, are no longer valid. Signal integrity analysis further complicates the characterization process because the typical voltage waveform used during characterization does not contain a noise component. This paper introduces two new technologies for standard… CONTINUE READING
