The purpose of statistical timing simulation is to assess the impact of process variations on pattern delays. In this paper, we propose a novel hazard-aware statistical timing simulator. Our simulator characterizes timing hazards in terms of uncertainty windows whose widths are computed as random variables. Given a 2-pattern vector, the simulator estimates… CONTINUE READING
