Noise analysis and power distribution network reliability assessment is extremely important in deep sub-micron digital and mixed-signal circuit design. Both relate closely to the nonlinear loading impact of digital circuits. Consequently, accurate estimation of the latter is critical. In this paper, we present extraction techniques that automatically generate a family of small, time-varying macromodels for digital cell libraries, at the time of their library characterization. Our approach is based on importin…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
