Foundations of Static Timing Analysis - Part 1
Need of Timing Analysis ; STA vs. DTA

What you will learn

Definition of Timing Analysis

Why is Timing Analysis needed

Static timing analysis vs. Dynamic Timing Analysis (STA vs. DTA)

Selecting STA vs. DTA

Description

Are you at University and want to make choices about your career in the STA-related roles of semiconductor industry?
OR
Are you looking to revisit the basic concepts just before a job interview for a digital design/STA – related role?
OR
Are you a working professional who is looking to rebuild the foundations of Static Timing Analysis ?

Look no further, because this course is designed just for YOU!!

In this course, you will learn about Static Timing Analysis and Dynamic Timing Analysis and their individual use-cases. You will learn about key concepts and terms of STA. This course is time-effective and has illustrative explanations. Fun cartoon characters  will demonstrate the difficult concepts with ease  :).  We discuss about the setup-time and hold-time concepts and their constraints in context of timing analysis. We also discuss about timing paths and a brief introduction to timing exceptions.
