Static Timing Analysis

Complementing our Schematic and Signal Integrity (SI) Analysis services, Valydate provides advanced Static Timing Analysis (STA) for both pre- and post-layout. Clients not only receive accurate and comprehensive Static Timing Analysis reports but the Valydate team also provides recommendations to resolve any identified issues (Optimizing routing constraints, back-annotation of track delays, tromboning of traces to match timing, etc).

Using the latest simulation tools, Valydate analyzes designs early in the hardware development cycle to:

  • Identify which nets and components require simulation.
  • Perform “what-if” scenarios to accurately set design constraints (topologies, bus architectures, etc.)
  • Provide and embed accurate mathematical layout constraints to clients’ layout specialists before layout start.
  • Provide board stack-up strategy and definition

Following layout, Valydate re-analyzes designs to:

  • Provide a comprehensive analysis of all selected signals using worst case analysis
  • Identify final routing adjustments to center the timing margins of the design
  • Provide integrated SI/STA feedback of design integrity with mutually compatible recommendations

"Valydates analysis service identified real errors before we committed our design. This helped us get to market faster with a higher quality product."

Ben Brown
VP Engineering, LTX-Credence

“Valydates Schematic Integrity service has been very useful; not only in finding some issues, but also as a thorough check in verifying that other parts of the design have been done correctly.”

Milan Fait, Alcatel-Lucent HW Design

“A must have process before fabrication to avoid unnecessary re-spin”

VP of Digital Hardware Eng., ATE Solutions Provider

“The service provided to us by Valydate helps us reduce the risk of going in layout with a complex design strategic to our companys growth. Some findings in the report will save us precious time in debugging and we are confident that this first layout will even be the version released to production.”

Andre Lessard, Hardware Manager, Commscope
