Description* Due to diversities of stress conditions, traditional fixed margins are insufficient to cover aging effects at design stage
* The developed aging-aware STA flow provides unique capability to overcome the diversities in stress conditions
- Minimizes Std. cell Char. costs by allowing DK-level aging models
- Provides good accuracy (average +/-1% error rate compares to SPICE)
- Considers aging degradation on a per-cell, per-path basis
