6 © 2014 Synopsys. All rights reserved.6 Characterization is your Cinderalla! Characterization is critical at advanced nodes today: –It is at the confluence of analog and digital –It provides the base for implementation –It enables new technologies and models –It is the glue across tools and flows –It has to be the first thought of tool developers and users alike Neglect characterization at your own peril!
