Value of a Design Tool Needs More Sense Than Dollars

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

It is interesting when I talk to purchasing managers at semiconductor companies and they use the dollar cost for a tool as the measure of its value.

Tool value can be hard to quantify and a price tag will not tell the whole story. The real cost behind any tool is the engineering effort to use the tool and the real time-saving and efficiency it brings to design teams.

The Meridian CDC solution from Real Intent, for  example, is often compared to tools from other vendors. When technical decision makers are involved, the value is very obvious since they can quantify the difference in effort.

It takes much less time to debug the results. Why? Because Meridian CDC analyzes the complete interface of the crossing and it reports how data and control crossings are associated. This generates dramatically fewer violations for review, despite the fact that all analysis rules are always turned on. Needless to say, having all rules on all the time helps in NOT missing design bugs.
