PrimeTime Special Interest Group (SIG) at SNUG Japan 2015

The Synopsys PrimeTime SIG is an active community for all PrimeTime users and design engineers who want to stay connected with the latest developments in the field of Static Timing Analysis (STA).

PrimeTime SIG at SNUG Japan 2015
A PrimeTime SIG event, Maximize Productivity with Advanced Signoff-driven ECO Technology, was held in Tokyo, Japan, during SNUG Japan on September 4, 2015.

Customer speakers from MegaChips and Socionext presented their timing closure experiences with advanced ECO technologies in PrimeTime. Members of the PrimeTime R&D team were present during this event.

Customer presentations are available for download from SolvNet.


Yohei Natsui


Yohei-san presented how PrimeTime physically-aware ECO achieved 90%+ single-pass fix rates and reduced remaining violations in the design by up to 46%, significantly accelerating signoff timing closure. 

Takako Ohashi

Socionext Inc.

Takako-san described how IC Compiler II vastly improves physical implementation runtime and quality of results (QoR), and how PrimeTime physically-aware ECO route-based buffering delivered 3X faster timing closure. 

Yuji Morita


Yuji-san joined the speakers for the panel session. 

Jacob Avidan


Jacob, Vice President of Engineering for PrimeTime, presented an overview of recent customer successes with advanced ECO technologies, previewed some exciting upcoming features, and shared his vision of the future of signoff-driven ECO.
