This capability, combined with advances in post-route leakage optimization and MCMM
leakage scenario optimization, enables IC Compiler 2010.
For reasons laid out in the next Part, addressing this question requires us to probe deeper than the received views of economists and legal authorities by adopting the MCMM
iHO has been enhanced to support all stages of MCMM optimizations throughout the hierarchical flow to provide improved QoR and dramatically reduce the TAT of the designs.
ATopTech's, physical design engine, Aprisa, is the leading solution for fast design closure that takes into account complex timing issues associated with SI and MCMM analysis.
Built upon its hierarchical database are common "analysis engines", such as RC extraction, DRC engine, and an advanced, extremely fast timing engine to solve the complex timing issues associated with OCV, SI and MCMM
The Olympus-SoC implementation system provides true multi-corner multi-mode (MCMM
) optimization of timing, power, signal integrity and die size, and MCMM
clock tree synthesis and optimization.
This is because many blocks operating at different voltages, or intermittently shut off, increases the number of power states, which compounds the already complex MCMM problem.
Power-aware CTS with smart clock gate placement, slew shaping, register clumping and concurrent MCMM optimization that ensures a balanced clock tree with the minimum number of clock buffers.
A compact data structure with an unlimited number of virtual timing graphs makes the Olympus-SoC system inherently efficient for complex MCMM
In addition, Aprisa offers sophisticated parallel computing with features such as concurrent MCMM
, multithreading and multiprocessing, with results up to five times faster than existing tools.
MCMM analysis enables customers to address reliability issues such as crosstalk delay, glitch, power, and electromigration while reducing the time to achieve design closure.
Olympus-SoC's MCMM SI capability addresses a major unmet need in the design community.
