Process and environmental variations continue to present significant challenges to designers of high-performance integrated circuits. In the past few years, while much research has been aimed at handling parameter variations as part of timing analysis, few proposals have actually included ways to interpret the results of this parameterized static timing analysis (PSTA) step. In this paper, we propose a new post-variational analysis metric that can be used to quantify the (timing) robustness of… CONTINUE READING
