Crosstalk and Noise


This chapter describes the signal integrity aspects of an ASIC in nanometer technologies. In deep submicron technologies, crosstalk plays an important role in the signal integrity of the design. The crosstalk noise refers to unintentional coupling of activity between two or more signals. Relevant noise and crosstalk analysis techniques, namely glitch analysis and crosstalk analysis, allow these effects to be included during static timing analysis and are described in this chapter. These techniques can be used to make the ASIC behave robustly.
