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, enhanced power estimation 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 group of customers.
Enhancements to the GenSys platform include more flexible logical/physical port mapping, several improvements to the Autoconnect feature, and an enhanced RTL 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 and deliver significant productivity gains that our customers have come to expect from Atrenta.”
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 into the 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 on SpyGlass to reduce risk and cost before traditional EDA tools are deployed. SpyGlass functions like an interactive guidance system for design engineers and managers, finding the fastest and least expensive path to implementation for complex SoCs.
