Configuring the STA Environment


This chapter describes how to set up the environment for static timing analysis. Specification of correct constraints is important in analyzing STA results. The design environment should be specified accurately so that STA analysis can identify all the timing issues in the design. Preparing for STA involves amongst others, setting up clocks, specifying IO timing characteristics, and specifying false paths and multicycle paths. It is important to understand this chapter thoroughly before proceeding with the next chapter on timing verification.
