Statistical Timing Analysis       


Machine Organization Accomplishment | 2004 - 2007

IBM researcher: Chandu Visweswariah

Where the work was done: IBM T.J. Watson Research Center

What we accomplished: Use statistical approaches instead of worst-case combinations of all parameters to allow higher yield and better performance, with arbitrarily high levels of confidence.
