1) Advance and High performance design challenged– Encounter solution-RCP
Traditional synthesis tools use vendor-supplied wire-load models based on fanouts, which do not provide accurate wire delay information especially for designs where a significant portion of the delays are contributed by the wires. The RCP flow uses a complete placement and considers congestion and legal placement as a cost function during the RTL-to-gates phase, to create a better netlist. This flow ensures both the best accuracy and the most predictable closure with back-end tools.
Clock Concurrent Optimization technology, also known as CCopt, which delivers superior capabilities for designers faced with increasing performance, power and area challenges. Specifically, ccopt technology has delivered significant quality of silicon (QoS) on high-speed processor designs in the areas of:
n ?Power (clock tree power reduction up to 30 percent and total power improvements of up to 10 percent),
n ?Performance (improvements of up to 100 MHz for a GHz design), and
n ?Area (clock tree area reduction up to 30 percent)
The new GigaOpt technology inside EDI System produces high-quality results faster than traditional optimization engines by harnessing the power of multiple CPUs. GigaOpt does multi-threading combined base and SI delay timing optimization.
