Design for Low Power at RTLWith the SpyGlass® Power solution policies, users can tune their designs for power consumption and efficiency at the register transfer level (RTL). The SpyGlass Power solution provides early information about power consumption at RTL, and provides guidance where power can be reduced. The SpyGlass Power solution not only detects, but can also automatically fix, key power management issues.The advantages are significant. Traditional approaches address power analysis and optimization at the gate level, making changes difficult and costly and complicating verification. The SpyGlass Power solution, by contrast, enables users to tune power characteristics during RTL creation, when the design impact is greatest and the cost of modifications lowest. It can significantly shorten development cycles, reduce costs and improve the power characteristics of the finished product.
Cadence® Space-based Router
Company: Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
Growing design complexity and more digital and analog/mixed-signal
content mean designers face critical yield and manufacturability
challenges, such as lithography issues, inconsistent manufacturing
rules, copper materials, electrical concerns, and performance
requirements. Cadence® Space-Based Router addresses all these concerns
simultaneously, helping designers achieve shorter time to convergence,
better quality of silicon, and differentiated products for consumer and
