Suppose,you work on a specification of a system with some digital parameters.
Each parameter has Min,Typ and Max colomns.
In what column would you put a setup and a hold time?
A: hint from Hitequest
put SETUP time into the Min colomn, put HOLD time into the Min colomn too.
usually the data must be set at least (minimum) X nS before the clock and being held at least Y nS after the clock. You need to specify Min setup and Min hold time.
According to me, setup time is the minimum time for which
the signal is held before the application of the clock
signal. Thus setup time will be put in the Min column.
Whereas after the clock signal is applied, the signal is
maintained stable for a period of time defining it as the
Hold time. Thus this should be placed after the Min column
i.e. Typ column. Also Setup time indicates the maximum
delay produced in the input signal before the onset of the
