We introduce a new framework for describing path sensitization criteria in combinational networks. This framework is used to analyze and categorize several sensitization criteria proposed in the past. We discuss some misconceptions of existing sensitization criteria, and evaluate the effects of hazards on the delay of combinational circuits. Finally, we introduce a new sensitization criterion representing a lower bound on the delay of the longest sensitizable path
