Synopsys, Inc. recently announced that the company’s PrimeTime® PX solution, a key component of the Galaxy Implementation Platform and part of Synopsys' Eclypse low power solution, has been successfully deployed at more than 175 semiconductor companies worldwide to perform highly accurate dynamic and leakage power analysis. Seamless integration within PrimeTime, the industry standard for timing and signal integrity signoff, has resulted in the selection of PrimeTime PX as the preferred power analysis solution at companies from all facets of the semiconductor industry. Battery life, energy efficiency and product reliability are key concerns in complex system-on-chip (SoC) designs, and power analysis has become an integral part of today's design flows. PrimeTime PX expands the PrimeTime timing and signal integrity analysis solution to deliver highly accurate dynamic and leakage power analysis for designs at 90 nanometers (nm) and below. The integration of timing, signal integrity, and power eliminates redundant set-up and calculation steps required when using separate standalone tools. PrimeTime PX features a rich user interface familiar to PrimeTime users, as well as intuitive commands and reports designed to improve productivity. PrimeTime PX is able to complete power analysis on multi-million-gate designs within hours.
