Process variation dimension reduction based on SVD Conference Paper uri icon


  • We propose an algorithm based on singular value decomposition (SVD) to reduce the number of process variation variables. With few process variation variables, fault simulation and timing analysis under process variation can be performed efficiently, Our algorithm reduces the number of process variation variables while preserving the delay function with respect to process variation. Compared with the principal component analysis (PCA) method, our algorithm requires less computation time and guarantees the reduced process variation variables are independent. Experimental results on ISCAS85 circuits show that the algorithm works well.
