Abstract

This checking and delay (CHAD) system is a computer tool for net checking and delay calculation for a technology and technology mix. This system consists of four integral parts: 1. Technology specification - technology wiring rules and delay equations specified in a high level format. 2. CHAD - a single program which performs the specified net checking and delay calculations. 3. Translator - a program which maps the technology specification (1) into the CHAD program (2). 4. EDS (Engineering Design System) Link - net data interface with physical work files of EDS.
