Due to technology scaling, integrated circuit manufacturing techniques are producing structures with large variabilities in their dimensions. To guarantee high yield, the manufactured structures must have the proper electrical characteristics despite such geometrical variations. For a designer, this means extracting the electrical characteristics of a whole family of structure realizations in order to guarantee that they all satisfy the required electrical characteristics. Sensitivity extraction provides an efficient algorithm to extract all realizations concurrently. This paper presents a complete framework for efficient resistance sensitivity extraction.
