We introduce the Composable Involution Delay Model (CIDM) for fast and accurate digital simulation. It is based on the Involution Delay Model (IDM) [Függer et al., IEEE TCAD 2020], which has been shown to be the only existing candidate model for faithful glitch propagation. The IDM, however, has shortcomings that limit its applicability. Our CIDM thus reduces the characterization effort by allowing independent discretization thresholds, improves composability and increases the modeling power by exposing canceled pulse trains at the gate interconnect. We formally show that, despite these improvements, the CIDM still retains the IDM’s faithfulness.
