Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

  Description     : Gate-level Static Timing Analyzer

After synthesis, place and route of a digital circuit, it is necessary to
verify the timing of the design. OpenSTA is a tool for doing exactly that. It
has a TCL interface for entering commands for analysing designs.

It typically takes as input a verilog netlist, a liberty file, and other
parasitics information from the placed and routed design.

There is one similar, but more basic, tool called 'vesta' inside the qflow
package already in Debian, but OpenSTA is a more complete solution.

I plan to maintain it in the Debian Electronics team.
