VC CDC: Next-Generation CDC Static Checking
In today's SoCs, the convergence of multiple functions causes very complex interaction between advanced interface protocols and logic. Combined with the growing number of IPs used, the very large design sizes, and complex clocking, is causing the number of paths crossing clock domains to explode. These forces combine and create the demand to find all CDC issues as early as possible in the design cycle, to avoid tedious debugging late in verification stages, or far worse, missing a CDC bug, resulting in expensive silicon re-spins, or even more expensive field returns. Synopsys' VC CDC solution provides comprehensive CDC verification for SoCs at full-chip RTL, enabling designers to find and debug CDC issues early in the design cycle.
