Improving Design Power and Performance with RTL Architect

Exploring the impact of RTL on implementation PPA has traditionally been very difficult since it was hard to connect the results to the source code.  The first difficulty occurs during elaboration and synthesis. The RTL is converted to gates and the references to the source code are lost.  The second difficulty is the gate-centric, implementation, PPA reports. The reports are designed to identify place and route issues on gate-level timing paths which is not useful to identify opportunities to improve RTL. In this webinar, Synopsys will demonstrate how to use RTL Architect™ to analyze power and restructure RTL. 

Attend this Synopsys webinar to learn how to:

  • Analyze RTL to identify the largest contributions to power dissipation
  • Perform advanced glitch analysis using the hybrid PrimePower flow
  • Perform RTL restructuring tasks: group, ungroup and reparent 
  • Hear from a Synopsy customer about their experiences using RTL Architect


Listed below are the industry leaders scheduled to speak.
