Process variation has an increasingly dramatic effect on delay and power as process geometries shrink. Even if the amount of variation remains the same as in previous generations, it accounts for a greater percentage of process geometries as they get smaller. So an accurate prediction of path delay and power variability for real digital circuits in the… CONTINUE READING
