antenna effect

[an′ten·ə i′fekt]
(electromagnetism)
A distortion of the directional properties of a loop antenna caused by an input to the direction-finding receiver which is generated between the loop and ground, in contrast to that which is generated between the two terminals of the loop. Also known as electrostatic error; vertical component effect.

This situation makes an antenna violation detector a critical piece of technology to ensure that the engineers responsible for completing the layout and physical design verification of the chips are able to meet the tight design schedules typical in today's marketplace," said Krishna Balachandran, director of technical marketing at Gambit.
Balachandran said, "This is a correct-by-construction approach that results in the elimination of all antenna violations with reduced physical design verification times and paves the way for quicker silicon.
Blast Fusion integrates logic optimization, placement and routing, automatically handling timing, antenna violations, power and signal integrity and the entire physical design process within a single environment.
