Faster Design Closure with PrimeTime AOCV
PrimeTime Advanced OCV, is a mature and proven technology in Static Timing Analysis to address the variation challenges in designs at 65nm or below process nodes.

An accepted trend in the semiconductor industry, where process geometry is continuously shrinking,
is the growing impact of variation in static timing analysis (STA). As on-chip-variation (OCV) effects continue to increase with shrinking geometry nodes, applying a flat global margin across the entire chip can lead to overdesign, reduced design performance, and longer timing closure cycles. The PrimeTime Advanced OCV
solution is a sophisticated technology that takes advantage of improved device-level variation modeling techniques to provide the right balance between accuracy and performance.
