Correlation-preserved non-gaussian statistical timing analysis with quadratic timing model
Recent study shows that the existing first order canonical timing model is not sufficient to represent the dependency of the gate delay on the variation sources when processing and operational variations become more and more significant. Due to the nonlinearity of the mapping from variation sources to the gate/wire delay, the distribution of the delay is no longer Gaussian even if the variation sources are normally distributed. A novel quadratic timing model is proposed to capture the non-linearity of the dependency of gate/wire delays and arrival times on the variation sources. Systematic methodology is also developed to evaluate the correlation and distribution of the quadratic timing model. Based on these, a novel statistical timing analysis algorithm is propose which retains the complete correlation information during timing analysis and has the same computation complexity as the algorithm based on the canonical timing model. Tested on the ISCAS circuits, the proposed algorithm sh...
