Linear Fitting: Tightness Probability Previously, max operation is approximated by tightness probability [Chandu DAC04] where Tightness probability approximation is a linear fitting Tightness probability is hard to obtain when A and B are non- Gaussian random variables Max operation is a non-linear operation Linear fitting is not accurate enough Need a more accurate and efficient non-linear approximation

Non-linear fitting of Max: Second Order Polynomial Fitting Using second order polynomial instead of linear function to approximate the max operation whereand V is a random variable with any arbitrary distribution Fitting coefficients are computed by matching the mean of the max operation while minimizing the square error between h and max(V,0) within the 3σrange where How to obtain these Fitting Coefficients?

7
Mean of the Max Operation When V is a non-Gaussian random variable, it is hard to compute E[max(V,0)] Two step solution We approximate the non-Gaussian random variable V as a quadratic function of a standard Gaussian random variable W by matching the first 3 moments [Zhang’ISPD05] c 2, c 1, and c 0 can be computed by close form formulas Use E[max(g(W), 0)] to approximate E[max(V,0)]

8
Compute Fitting Coefficients Recall the constraint that matching the mean of the max operation we have The constrained optimization equation can be written as the unconstrained optimization equation: where Expanding the integral, the square error can be represented as quadratic form of can be computed easily by letting partial derivative of SE to be 0

11
Quadratic Delay Model Delay is quadratic function of variation sources X i ’s are independent random variables with arbitrary distribution X i ’s are with zero mean and unit standard deviation R is local random variation, which is modeled as a Gaussian random variable

Max Operation Flow Compute mean, variance, and skewness of D p =D 1 -D 2 Obtain the fitting coefficients Θ for max(D p,0) Reconstruct D m =max(D 1,D 2 ) to quadratic delay form

14
Moments of D p Quadratic form of Dp where First three moments of D P Because D p is in quadratic form of variation sources X i ’s, the moments of D p can be computed by close form formulas With the first three moments, it is easy to obtain the fitting coefficients Θ for max(D p,0)=h(D p,Θ)

Reconstruct D m to Quadratic Form Fitting result of D m Dm is a 4 th order polynomial of X i ’s Moment Matching [Zhan DAC2005] Joint moments between D m and X i ’s can be computed by close form formulas

16
Add Operation Just add the correspondent parameters to get the parameters of D s

17
Computational Complexity The computational complexity of one step max operation is O(n 3 ), where n is the number of variation sources The computational complexity of one step add operation is O(n 2 ) The complexity measured as the total number of max and add operations of the SSTA is linear with respect to the circuit size

18
Semi-Quadratic SSTA Effect of the crossing terms in the quadratic model is weak [Zhan DAC2005], ignoring crossing terms will not affects the accuracy too much Simplified delay model without crossing terms (semi-quadratic delay model) Where The SSTA flow for the semi-quadratric delay model is similar to that of the quadratic delay model, but much simpler The computational complexity of both max and add operation for semi-quadratic SSTA is O(n)

Error and Run Time Comparison For quadratic SSTA, the error of mean, standard deviation, and skewness is within 1%, 1%, and 5%, respectively. For Semi-Quadratic SSTA, the error of mean, standard deviation, and skewness is within 1%, 2%, and 25% error. Semi-quadratic SSTA ignores crossing terms which affects skewness Semi-quadratic SSTA results similar error as Fourier SSTA, but 20X faster Semi-quadratic SSTA is more accurate than linear SSTA with similar run time
