In this paper, a methodology for generating worst-case SPICE files is presented. This methodology is based upon the identification and evaluation of circuit building blocks within a design. Correlations between these blocks will be determined for a specific circuit variable. The results show there is a high degree of correlation between NAND, NOR, inverter logic gates and NAND gate implemented in Complementary Pass Transistor Logic (CPL) with regards to speed and power dissipation. A method of resolving multiple SPICE files is also presented which produces a realistic prediction of circuit performance.
