The program autochar is used to automate the characteriza tion of digital circuits. It basically generates simula tion wrappers for popular circuit simulators like Hspice and Smartspice (sorry, no spice2 or spice3), and allows the user to characterize circuit behavior such as delay as a function of loading capacitance, input capacitance, register setup and hold times, clock enable setup and hold times, and clock to Q delay as a function of load capacitance. Other characterization types will be added in future updates of autochar, including tristate buffers, power, and critical path delays.
