Static Timing Analysis - II Sushant Singh

RECAP: Setup check with Ideal clock

Insertion of Clock Tree : Non - ideal Clocks

What are real clocks: • Clock Tree is an essential process to minimize skew in the design. • Whenever Clock Tree is inserted, clock path becomes real. We also have network launch insertion delay and capture insertion delay. • All the timing parameters (Ghz) should be satisfied with real clocks. The chip should run at the specified frequency despite additional constraints.

Modification of Clock Path:

Clock Network Delay shifts the edges:

Skew should be zero:

Setup Constraints with real clocks:

Data Arrival and Data Required Time:

Adding speed breakers (x): degrades Slack

Solving a local problem might adversely affect globally

Increasing DRT affects DAT in the next cycle: • Increasing number of buffers in the capture clock increases DRT and helps DAT to meet timing (increasing slack). • But it degrades the DAT or slack of the next clock cycle. • Be sure to check timing (slack) of the next cycle before adding buffers to meet timing of the current clock path. • Solving constraints locally might adverse the timing globally.

Hold Analysis revisited for single clock:

Hold vs Setup Check: • Recall that hold check is done on the same edge at both launch and capture flops. • Setup check is done on different edges at both flops. • Hold failure leads to functional failure and setup check leads to incorrect capture of data or metastability.

Hold Time constraints with Real clocks:

Adding Necessary Hold Time constraints (pessimism):

Increasing slack in Hold Timing Constraints:

Increasing skew leads to increase in DRT, which results in Hold timing violation.
