Abstract

Disclosed is a method that enables general static timing tools to accurately estimate the clock skew and the slack of a design that is partitioned into hierarchies. Benefits include a solution that can be generalized to all timing aspects (i.e. not only to skew) when a design hierarchy is encountered.
