PrimeTime Static Timing Analysis

PrimeTime Spotlight

Golden Signoff

The PrimeTime® Suite delivers fast, memory-efficient scalar and multicore computing, distributed multi-scenario analysis and ECO fixing using variation-aware CCS modeling.

Synopsys' PrimeTime static timing analysis tool provides a single, golden, trusted signoff solution for timing, signal integrity, power and variation-aware analysis. It delivers HSPICE® accurate signoff analysis that helps pinpoint problems prior to tapeout thereby reducing risk, ensuring design integrity, and lowering the cost of design. This industry gold-standard improves your team’s productivity by delivering fast turnaround to shave precious time from development schedules for large and small designs while ensuring first-pass silicon success through greater predictability and the highest accuracy.
