Synopsys and ARM Experts Review Smart Constraint Management Practices for Efficient Timing Closure

In this Webinar, Synopsys and ARM discuss accelerating timing closure by implementing timing constraint best practices. ARM kicks off the webinar with a comprehensive discussion of the best practices they recommend to their customers, covering areas such as PrimeTime constraint interpretation, clock constraint development and constraint management during the project life-cycle. Synopsys then outlines several constraint analysis techniques in PrimeTime SI that quickly confirm that these best practices are used.

PrimeTime 2015 Webinar Series

Using PrimeTime POCV to Improve Productivity and PPA in FinFET Designs – the NVIDIA Experience

In this webinar, Synopsys introduces the PrimeTime parametric on-chip variation (POCV) technology, which helps reduce design margins in FinFET designs. Learn about NVIDIA’s latest FinFET tapeout experience with PrimeTime POCV technology, and how it improved their productivity, and the power, performance, and area (PPA) of designs with fast and accurate variation modeling throughout the implementation and signoff flow.

STMicroelectronics Deploys PrimeTime ECO Noise Fixing to Reduce Noise Violations by More Than 95%

In this webinar, learn about the latest noise fixing addition to PrimeTime ECO, presented by Synopsys and STMicroelectronics. Synopsys starts the webinar with an overview of how PrimeTime ECO works and the key technology that addresses noise violations without disrupting timing. STMicroelectronics then outlines how PrimeTime ECO noise fixing fits their PrimeTime and IC Compiler signoff flow and shares results from real designs showing over 95% noise fixing rates.

Multiply-instantiated Module (MIM) Timing Closure with PrimeTime ECO – With Samsung Case Study

In this webinar, learn about the fastest path to timing closure for SoC designs with multiply instantiated modules (MIMs) by using PrimeTime ECO technology. Topics include the growing popularity of MIM-based SoCs and the challenges of timing closure for hierarchical designs with MIMs. This webinar presents a Samsung case study that demonstrates the benefits of a MIM ECO flow.
