This comprehensive course is designed so that students, engineers, VLSI professionals, electronics professionals, researchers… can learn Static Timing Analysis from scratch to use it in a practical and professional way. Never mind if you have no experience in STA or VLSI, you will be equally capable of understanding everything and you will finish the course with total mastery of the subject.

After several years working as an Engineer, I have realized that nowadays mastering Static Timing Analysis is very necessary in VLSI, Circuit Design or other engineering applications. Knowing how to use this package can give you many job opportunities and many economic benefits, especially in the world of the engineering.

The big problem has always been the complexity to perfectly understand STA it requires, since its absolute mastery is not easy. In this course I try to facilitate this entire learning and improvement process, so that you will be able to carry out and understand your own projects in a short time, thanks to the step-by-step and detailed examples of every concept.

With almost 6 exclusive hours of video, this comprehensive course leaves no stone unturned! It includes both practical exercises and theoretical examples to master STA. The course will teach you physical design and timing constraints in a practical way, from scratch, and step by step.

In the course, we will cover a wide variety of topics, including:

  • Introduction to Static Timing Analysis and course dynamics
  • Download and Install needed software to conduct the projects
  • Cell and Net Delay
  • Clocks
  • Timing Checks
  • Timing Paths
  • SDC Constraints
  • Setting Timing Constraints
  • Opensource tool OpenTimer mastery
  • Mastery and application of absolutely ALL the functionalities of STA
  • Practical exercises, complete projects and much more!

In other words, what I want is to contribute my grain of sand and teach you all those things that I would have liked to know in my beginnings and that nobody explained to me. In this way, you can learn to build a wide variety of projects quickly and make versatile and complete use of STA. And if that were not enough, you will get lifetime access to any class and I will be at your disposal to answer all the questions you want in the shortest possible time.

Learning Static Timing Analysis has never been easier. What are you waiting to join?
