    Parameterized cells (PCells) are widely used for layout design acceleration and are usually delivered as a part of Process Design Kit (PDK) device libraries. The quality of the PCells affects to the quality and speedup of the layout design. The PCell complexity increases from year to year due to moving to deep...

    In static timing analysis (STA), hold and setup time violation checks requires accurate delay measurements of combinational circuits. Look up table (LUT) based methods for delay measurements of these circuits are quite common. These LUTs are pre-characterized for various values of input rise time (TR) and output loads...

    In the era of lower technology nodes, more pessimism is required for timing closure due to greater variation across corners. In a typical scenario, the number of hold buffers required for timing signoff may be of the order of 100 thousand. The buffers added to fix hold are small having less drive strength. These...

    Rather than using the bandwidth of the processor for complex arithmetic operations, more and more data processing is implemented in the hardware itself. These hardware accelerators usually implement complex mathematical equations including the power series functions. Implementation of power functions ( where X and...

    Phone calls that interact with a voice menu on a mobile device require touch input via soft keypad/keyboard (e.g., "Press 1 for appliances"). These calls typically involve an awkward movement of the device toward and away from the user's ear, as the user listens to prompts and then provides the requested touch...

    When using a phone, the user must turn on the soft keyboard at inopportune times. The user can turn on the soft keypad at the beginning of a call, or turn it on when needed. But, this can be problematic since it requires multiple steps (login, activate phone app, press keypad button) and the user must go to the phone...
