This paper presents an efficient method for the estimation of jitter due to power supply noise in a chain-of-inverters including the on-chip-interconnects. An analytical noise transfer function from power supply to output is derived based on a small-signal analysis. The estimation of jitter is done using a slope-based semi-analytical approach and the results are compared with the SPICE-based simulations.
