Joao on a Framework for Responsible Timing at the TAU Workshop 2014

Joao discusses an industry customer framework that will enable timing sign-off at advanced process nodes from 20nm, 16nm, 14nm and beyond. 

Towards a Framework for “Responsible Timing”

Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to outline a new framework for sign-off timing flows for 20nm and below:  ‘Responsible Timing’. This framework defines the requirements from each of the key participants, foundry, EDA vendor and IC design house, criteria by which we can measure the flow effectiveness and a new approach to transparent, well articulated standards.
