Considering RLC interconnect model and multiple switching aggressors, we study switching pattern generation and switching time alignment that leads to worst-case crosstalk noise for a quiet victim or a noisy one. We assume that aggressors can have arbitrary switching patterns and can switch at arbitrary times. We show that the commonly used superposition algorithm results in 15% underestimation on average, and propose a new algorithm that has virtually the same complexity as the superposition… CONTINUE READING
