This paper presents a design methodology emphasizing early and quick timing closure for high frequency microprocessor designs.  ...  This methodology was used to design a Gigahertz class PowerPC microprocessor with 19 million transistors.  ...  This "Timing Closure by Design" methodology was instrumental in designing a 19 million transistor microprocessor and achieving its 1.0 Gigahertz frequency target with a small team on a tight schedule.  ...
