This paper proposes an approach to cope with temporal power/ground voltage fluctuation for static timing analysis. The proposed approach replaces temporal noise with an equivalent power/ground voltage. This replacement reduces complexity that comes from the variety in noise waveform shape, and improves compatibility of power/ground noise aware timing analysis with conventional timing analysis framework. Experimental results show that the proposed approach can compute gate propagation delay considering temporal noise within 10% error in maximum and 0.5% in average.
