New voltage and temperature scalable gate delay model applied to a 14nm technology

Kenza Charafeddine, Faissal Ouardi


The following work shows an innovative approach to model the timing of standard cells. By using mathematical models instead of the classical SPICE-based characterization, a high amount of CPU (Central Processing Unit) cores is saved and less amount of data is stored. In the present work, characterization of cells of a standard cell library is done in an hour whereas it is done in 650 hours with the classical method. Also, a method for validating and verification of the precision of the modelled data is resented by comparing them on a implemented circuit. The output of implementations shows less than 3% of error between the two methods.
