6-2 Gate Propagation Delay  Propagation delay is the time for a change on an input of a gate to propagate to the output.  Delay is usually measured at the 50% point with respect to the H and L output voltage levels.  High-to-low (t PHL ) and low-to-high (t PLH ) output signal changes may have different propagation delays.  High-to-low (HL) and low-to-high (LH) transitions are defined with respect to the output, not the input.  An HL input transition causes: an LH output transition if the gate inverts and an HL output transition if the gate does not invert.

Propagation Delay (continued)  Propagation delays measured at the midpoint between the L and H values

Propagation Delay Example  Find t PHL, t PLH and t pd for the signals given IN (volts) OUT (volts) t (ns) 1.0 ns per division

Delay Models  Transport delay - a change in the output in response to a change on the inputs occurs after a fixed specified delay  Inertial delay - similar to transport delay, except that if the input changes such that the output is to change twice in a time interval less than the rejection time, the output changes do not occur. Models typical electronic circuit behavior, namely, rejects narrow “pulses” on the outputs

Delay Model Example A A B: Transport Delay (TD) Inertial Delay (ID) B Time (ns)0426810121416 No Delay (ND) abcde Propagation Delay = 2.0 ns Rejection Time = 1.0 ns

Circuit Delay  Suppose gates with delay n ns are represented for n = 0.2 ns, n = 0.4 ns, n = 0.5 ns, respectively: 0.2 0.5 0.4

 Consider a simple 2-input multiplexer:  With function: Y = B for S = 1 Y = A for S = 0  “Glitch” is due to delay of inverter A 0.4 0.5 0.4 S B Y 0.2 Circuit Delay A S B Y S

Fan-out and Delay  The fan-out loading (a gate’s output) affects the gate’s propagation delay  Example 6-1:( page 324) One realistic equation for t pd for a NAND gate with 4 inputs is: t pd = 0.07 + 0.021 × SL ns SL is the number of standard loads the gate is driving, i. e., its fan-out in standard loads 4-input NOR gate—0.8 standard load 3-input NAND gate—1.0 standard load Inverter—1.0 standard load For SL = 4.5, t pd = 0.165 ns, what is the maximum standard loads?  If this effect is considered, the delay of a gate in a circuit takes on different values depending on the circuit load on its output.

 t s - setup time  t h - hold time  t w - clock pulse width  T p- - propa- gation delay t PHL - High-to- Low t PLH - Low-to- High t pd - max (t PHL, t PLH ) 6-3 Flip-Flop Timing

Flip-Flop Timing Parameters  t s - setup time the time that inputs S and R or D must be maintained at a constant value prior to the occurrence of the clock transition Master-slave - Equal to the width of the triggering pulse Edge-triggered - Equal to a time interval that is generally much less than the width of the the triggering pulse

Flip-Flop Timing Parameters  t h - hold time minimum time for which the inputs must not change after the clock transition that causes the output to change Often is set to zero  t w -minimum clock pulse width to ensure that the master has time enough to capture the input values correctly  T p- - propagation delay Same parameters as for gates except Measured from clock edge that triggers the output to the output change

6-4 Sequential Circuit Timing

 New Timing Components t p - clock period - The interval between occurrences of a specific clock edge in a periodic clock t pd,COMB - total delay of combinational logic along the path from flip-flop output to flip- flop input t slack - extra time in the clock period in addition to the sum of the delays and setup time on a path  Must be greater than or equal to zero on all paths for correct operation Circuit and System Level Timing

 Timing components along a path from flip-flop to flip-flop Circuit and System Level Timing (a) Edge-triggered (positive edge) t p t pd,FF t pd,COMB t slack t s C (b) Pulse-triggered (negative pulse) t p t pd,FF t pd,COMB t slack t s C

 Timing Equations t p = t slack + (t pd,FF + t pd,COMB + t s ) For t slack greater than or equal to zero, t p ≥ max (t pd,FF + t pd,COMB + t s ) for all paths from flip-flop output to flip-flop input Circuit and System Level Timing

Example 6-2  Suppose that all the flip-flops used are the same t pd =0.2 ns t s =0.1 ns t pd,COMB =1.3 ns t p =1.5 ns  t slack =-0.1 ns  t p is too small  t p >= 1.6ns  f max =625 MHz
