Abstract

See full text

A system and method are provided for actuating static and dynamic analysis tools in parametrically intercoupled manner for synergistic optimization of an electronic system design. The system and method execute a timing designer process for selectively actuating the static analysis tool to conduct timing analysis based on at least one predetermined timing model and generate a plurality of estimated values for certain signal parameters to be in compliance with predetermined timing constraints. A signal exploration process is executed to receive the estimated values from the timing designer process and configure the resources of the dynamic analysis tool responsive thereto. The signal exploration process actuates the dynamic analysis tool to conduct electrical integrity analysis based on transient simulation and generate a plurality of simulated values for signal parameters. The simulated values are back annotated to the timing designer process for timing closure.
