Interconnect Timing: The Elmore Delay Model

Course video 33 of 34

You synthesized it. You mapped it. You placed it. You routed it. Now what? HOW FAST DOES IT GO? Oh, we need some new models, to talk about how TIMING works. Delay through logic gates and big networks of gates. New numbers to understand: ATs, RATs, SLACKS, etc. And some electrical details (minimal) to figure out how delays happen through the physical geometry of physical routed wires. All together this is the stuff of Static Timing Analysis (STA), which is a huge and important final "sign off" step in real ASIC design.
