Process variations cause significant timing uncertainty and yield degradation in deep sub-micron technologies. A solution to counter timing uncertainty is post-silicon clock tuning. Existing design approaches for post-silicon-tunable (PST) clock-tree synthesis usually insert a PST clock buffer for each flip-flop or put PST clock buffers across an entire level of a clock-tree. This can cause significant over-design and long tuning time. In this paper, we propose to insert PST clock buffers at… CONTINUE READING
