The usual block-oriented timing analysis for logic circuits does not take into account functional relations between signals. If functional relations are taken into consideration, it could be found that a long path is never activated. This results in more accurate delays. A comparison is made of three arrival time functions, A, B, and R. A is the arrival time as given by exhaustive simulation; B
