Abstract

This paper presents a predictive framework for accurate static timing analysis in UDSM VLSI circuits. As technology scales to smaller dimensions, coupling capacitances are becoming a critical factor in signal integrity analysis. Coupling capacitances contribute to the noise and play a seminalrole in determining the timing windows of a circuit. Accuratean alysis of coupling effects is indispensable for meaning fulstatic timing and signal integrity analysis. Our proposed framework presents a Directed Search technique to calculate accurate coupling effects. We performed experiments on theISCAS'85 benchmarks and present the accuracy improvement up-to 45.5% compared to existing approaches. We also show that our framework decreased cell delay look-uptable accesses up-to 64.8%. Our results present the coupling effect on static timing analysis.
