|Statistical timing gets a foothold in leading-edge designs|
Is statistical timing analysis really helping anyone, or is it an EDA-industry marketing ploy? This simmering debate within the leading edge of the chip design community bubbled to the surface in the plenary sessions Wednesday during the International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED). The topic was the subject of both a lunch-time panel discussion and a plenary paper by one of the founders of the sport, IBM's Chandu Visweswariah.

|Process Variations Require Integrated Sign-Off Solutions|
In the traditional ASIC design flow, the sign-off stage was a key, well-defined point in the chip-making process. The designers would complete their front-end design and gate-level implementation, run timing sign-off using a static timing analysis tool, and hand the design to the ASIC foundry along with the timing constraints.
