    Timing Corners for setup check

    What corner is used for setup check?
    Process - Slow
    Temp - high
    Voltage - high
    This PVT condition makes cell delays as large as possible. Is this used for setup check to make setup check more critical.

    First and foremost, read the documentation that comes with the PDK. There are some nuances that are hard to capture with broad statements like "process = slow". There is also temperature inversion corners that are not intuitive.

    Generally speaking, your worst setup corner is process slow, temperature high, voltage low.
