Hi All,

As for the Transition Time and Propagation delays, which one is usually bigger/critical?

Thank you!

That is really dependent of the technology node.

Do you have a case?

Hm... What's the situation in the 25nm and 45nm nodes?
Do you have a case?
I just was recently told by someone that the transition delays usually take the significant part in the signals propagation through the nets / cells... Just wanted to check it up ...

Is it possible to separate between transition and propagation delays using STA tools (using SPICE I guess it's possible) ?

In any timing report you could know the part due by the trans, the net delay, the cell delay.

hi ivlsi,
I really have no much experience in that case, but I guess: trans seem be less than propagation delay. as I saw in 65nm technology with NLDM lib : propagation > 2xtrans (ofcourse for output trans of the same cell/pin relate/condition/....)
