Variation-aware performance verification using at-speed structural test and statistical timing

Abstract

Meeting the tight performance specifications mandated by the customer is critical for contract manufactured ASICs. To address this, at speed test has been employed to detect subtle delay failures in manufacturing. However, the increasing process spread in advanced nanometer ASICs poses considerable challenges to predicting hardware performance from timing… (More)
