METHOD OF REVERSE RANDOM SAMPLING FOR MEASUREMENT OF TIME DELAY IN ELEMENT OF THE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT WITH PICOSECOND ACCURACY
ITMO University; Postgraduate
Abstract. A new method of propagation delay measurement in micro- and nanostructures is described. The method makes it possible to observe the propagation time delay in a single element of standard-cell library and is accurate to better than 1 picoseconds.
