Hi, could You please help me to understand how OpenSTA reports the hold time in this simple case ?

@User thank You! All clear now, seems to be a pretty common case that the hold time is negative, here I found a tabe from TSMC 180 nm standard cell which reports some values of the hold time

the other thing is, why if the data required time is -0.05 and data arrival time is 0.03 the difference -0.05 - 0,03 is reported as positive number ?
