Power-aware verification of advanced low power designs (analog and digital) is a top concern for products at 32 nm and below. Voltage-aware functional verification
in Synopsys' advanced low power solution
is comprised of VCS Native Low Power (NLP) with MVSIM
and VC LP
, an advanced low power static rules checker that offers comprehensive coverage for all advanced power management functions. Synopsys' Low Power Verification solution's voltage-aware checking, modeling and simulation technology provides the needed accuracy and verification coverage for all low power designs, including the most advanced mobile SoCs with fine-grained power management. VCS NLP and VC LP supports comprehensive static analysis and checking of UPF-based power intent, including power state transitions, power shutdown and multi-rail macros and the like, to enable designers to rapidly find and fix low power bugs. HSPICE
test for non-digital effects such as leakage power, floating nodes and dynamic IR drop. The overall result is a completely verified power-managed design.
