DC Ultra™ RTL synthesis solution enables users to meet today's design challenges with concurrent optimization of timing, area, power and test. DC Ultra includes innovative topographical technology that enables a predictable flow resulting in faster time to results. Topographical technology provides timing and area prediction within 10% of the results seen post-layout enabling designers to reduce costly iterations between synthesis and physical implementation. DC Ultra also includes a scalable infrastructure that delivers 2X faster runtime on quad-core platforms.
DC Ultra is the core of Synopsys' comprehensive RTL synthesis solution, including Power Compiler™, DesignWare®, PrimeTime®, and DFTMAX™. Design Compiler Graphical is available as an add-on to DC Ultra that includes best-in-class quality-of-results, congestion prediction and alleviation capabilities, physical viewer, and floorplan exploration. Additionally Design Compiler Graphical produces physical guidance to IC Compiler, place-and-route solution for tighter correlation to layout and faster placement runtime.
