Does anybody know how capable is Leonardo to extract routing estimates? I know that this is backend work primarily.
So if (most probably) Leonardo doesn't imply even the simplest methods for routing (early-level) estimation, i have another question. Is this possible with their new tool, Precision Synthesis?
Plus: is Leonardo a DeaD tool? Caus

I was wondering what is the different, area wise, between >= and ==.
Lets say I want to start switch state in FSM (verilog, asic) with the condition cntr_t >= 4'h8.
(the counting is with a bit faster clock, so in the edge I'm checking it, it sometimes will be 8 and sometimes 9; there is sync).
Isn't it better to check only one bit with =

Usually under 1 GHz humidity and rain don't paly a big role in attenuation, you can estimate some 0,2 dB /Km.
Take instead a lot of care at the link margin; if you have to transmit data at least 20 dB margin, for voice 10 to 15 dB is enough.

Always keep the cell characterization as the last resort.
The library vendor can always do better than you, even though the parameter are rather conservative in case of the process violation and the yield.
Basically yes, but not always. I have an example:
Standard I/O for crystal oscillator.
Parameter : Power(uW/MHz).

you can refer to the ieee paper:

I am also looking for this paper.
Would you share this paper if you can get it?
For the gate min area, you can estimate using the following steps.
(1) calculate the delta(I)/I from INL requirement and yield requirement.

At what frequency are you switching the FETs? as with any high Id FET the trade off is often high Qg meaning slower switching speeds and hence longer time in the linear region = heat!
