To margin against modeling limitations in considering design and electrical complexities (e.g., crosstalk coupling, voltage drops) as well as variability (e.g., manufacturing process, environmental), "early" and "late" signal propagation delays in static timing analysis are often made pessimistic by addition of extra guard bands. While these forced "early-late splits" provide desired margins, the splits applied across the entire design introduce excessive and undesired pessimism. To this end… CONTINUE READING
