SAN JOSE, Calif - Dec 3, 2012 - Atrenta Inc., the leading provider
of SoC Realization solutions for the semiconductor and consumer electronics
industries, announced today the 5.0 release of its SpyGlass® RTL analysis
and optimization platform. This is also the first unified release of the
SpyGlass and GenSys® platforms.
The release contains extensive enhancements for performance, accuracy and
usability, and many are the direct result of customer feedback.
As part of
the release, the
GuideWare reference methodology has been enhanced by reducing the number
of goals without sacrificing quality of results. The new
goals align more closely with IP development and re-use flows. The new GuideWare
enhancements also align with IP Kit 2.0, which is also part of the release.
Availability of IP Kit 2.0 for TSMC soft IP alliance members was recently
announced as well.
Other features of the 5.0 release include enhanced Tcl
support, improved quality of results for clock domain crossing (CDC) analysis,
accuracy, sign-off level checks for power verification and improved register
and memory power reduction. Both the speed and accuracy of testability analysis
have been improved, as well as the performance of physical routing congestion
analysis. RTL physical analysis has also been extended for better support
of advanced technology nodes. A limited release version of an RTL 3D IC planning
tool is also included. Atrenta is developing this technology with a select
Enhancements to the GenSys platform include more flexible logical/physical
port mapping, several improvements to the Autoconnect feature, and an enhanced
Health Check Report.
“Atrenta has targeted many customer requested improvements in this release
of the SpyGlass platform," said Piyush Sancheti, vice president of product
marketing at Atrenta. "RTL power optimization has been a significant
focus area because we’re seeing strong demand for our SpyGlass Power
suite of products. I am confident that this release will be well-received
significant productivity gains that our customers have come to expect from
Atrenta’s SpyGlass® Predictive Analysis software platform significantly
improves design efficiency for the world’s leading semiconductor and
consumer electronics companies. Patented solutions provide early design insight
demanding performance, power and area requirements of the complex system
on chips (SoCs) fueling today’s consumer electronics revolution. More
than two hundred companies and thousands of design engineers worldwide rely
risk and cost before traditional EDA tools are deployed. SpyGlass functions
like an interactive guidance system for design engineers and managers, finding
fastest and least expensive path to implementation for complex SoCs.
