PrimeTime SI: Crosstalk Delay and Noise
In the class you will learn the basic concepts of crosstalk, their effects on timing and noise, and how PrimeTime SI can be used to identify these effects. You will apply the PrimeTime SI flow and methodology for chip level crosstalk analysis. The labs will demonstrate the use of PrimeTime SI to analyze crosstalk failures on an actual design.
Best practice methodologies will give you the insights to drive the PrimeTime SI tool at its optimum performance and to generate quality results.
Hands-on labs follow each training module, allowing you to apply the skills learned in lecture.
At the end of this workshop the student should be able to:
·Run PTSI for crosstalk delay and noise analysis?
·Use the key reports in the shell and GUI to identify violations due to crosstalk and guide timing closuree?
·Define clock relationships for improved timing accuracy?
·Apply useful commands to catch and report incomplete inputs to PTSI?
·More finely control PTSI and your fixing tool using the following techniques Manually control delta delay and noise calculations for specific nets?
·Apply path-based analysis?
·Apply what-if analysis
