Variability-aware and SPICE-accurate Timing Closure
Many sources of on-chip variation are conspiring to kill your project. Learn how the ANSYS FX platform, with its unique variation-aware technology, can save you from gross inaccuracies in modeling variation. Important topics include SPICE-accurate process variation, especially at low voltage; SPICE-accurate voltage variation including clock jitter due to IR drop; and a methodology shift in modeling chip-level aging that is easier, faster and more accurate than current approaches.
