SNUG India PrimeTime SIG Event Presenter

PrimeTime SIG at SNUG India 2014

A PrimeTime SIG event, Accelerating Timing Closure with Advanced Technologies, was held in Bangalore, India, during India SNUG on June 25, 2014. PrimeTime users and managers from top semiconductor companies attended the event. Customer speakers from AMD, ARM, Broadcom, and Qualcomm presented their timing closure experiences with PrimeTime advanced timing technologies. Members of the PrimeTime R&D team were also present during this event. 


Sabyasachi Sengupta


The event was kicked off by Sabyasachi, Physical Design CAD Director at Qualcomm, who shared his vision and expectation of advanced timing methodologies. He also moderated the event and Q&A session. 

Yogesh Agrawal


Yogesh shared the evolution of the timing ECO flow in his design methodology, results of PrimeTime physically-aware ECO, and how it improved the physical design convergence in his recent project tapeout.

Agnish Jain


Agnish shared the pessimism reduction and runtime benefits of POCV, results of deploying POCV on the design, and how POCV reduced pessimism of graph-based analysis with no noticeable difference in runtime.

Raghu Pattipati


Raghu highlighted successful deployments of advanced technologies including PrimeTime physically-aware ECO with ICC, HyperScale and POCV providing rapid design closure. 

Vijaykishan Narayanan


Vijaykishan shared how he accelerated hierarchical timing closure on the latest ARM® big.LITTLE™ processing SoC tapeout using Synopsys HyperScale MIM and physically-aware ECO technologies.

Alireza Kasnavi


Alireza shared PrimeTime's continued enhancements in performance and capacity, accuracy and design closure, and the vision of what is coming next.
