The design of clock distribution networks in synchronous digital systems presents enormous challenges. Controlling the clock signal delay in the presence of various noise sources, process parameter variations, and environmental effects represents a fundamental problem in the design of high speed synchronous circuits. A polynomial time algorithm that improves the tolerance of a clock distribution network to process and environmental variations is presented in this paper. The algorithm generates a clock tree to…
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.
