Timing Analysis

It is impractical to build complex digital systems without CAD tools to analyze and verify the designs. Therefore, novel circuit techniques are of little use without corresponding CAD tools. Although most standard circuit tools such as simulators, layout-versus-schematic checkers, ERC and signal integrity verifiers, and so on, work equally well for skew-tolerant and non-skew-tolerant circuits, timing analyzers must be enhanced to understand and take advantage of different amounts of clock skew between different clocks.

Timing analysis addresses the question of whether a particular circuit will meet a timing specification. ...
