CREST-a current estimator for CMOS circuits

  title={CREST-a current estimator for CMOS circuits},
  author={Farid N. Najm and Richard Burch and Ping Yang and Ibrahim N. Hajj},
CREST is a pattern-independent current estimation approach developed to support electromigration analysis tools. It uses the powerful, original concept of probabilistic simulation to e ciently generate accurate estimates of the expected current waveforms. As originally implemented, CREST was restricted to circuits with no pass transistors and no reconvergent fanout or feedback. This paper extends the approach to circuits containing pass transistors, reconvergent fanout, and feedback, and… CONTINUE READING
