I've just finished a brutal round of interviews and finally landed a job in STA, so I know whereof I speak. This book is a must read. It would have saved me endless embarrassing moments during interviews and would have easily payed back it's purchase price by enabling me to get a job sooner.This isn't a textbook. It won't teach you STA. And if you can't understand the questions and answers you would have had no hope on the interview anyways. What it will do is bring the fuzzy, work-a-day know how you already have of STA and bring it into sharp focus, allowing you to quickly and convincingly articulate your grasp of STA concepts. It will also fill out the gaps in your knowledge and connect up disjoint concepts so you have a global view of the subject matter.
The book covers all the basic building blocks of Static Timing Analysis by checking all the constraints of timing and noise.The book talks aboutSetup and Hold - How they are calculated in the context of the most restrictive edge and full repeating cycle?Recovery and removalTalks about exceptions - How to let the tool deviate from the default behavior by writing overrides for multi cycle paths and false paths.
Entry into the field of timing analysis is really eased with this book. Not just the knowledge but the language as well appeals 2 individuals who wish to foray into the core technical world !!
Hard to understand unless you are knowledgeable about the subject. If you really want to study find yourself a whole book about this instead of just reading a short article like this one.
