In the YouTube video interview below, Oren Katzir, vice-president of application engineering, introduces the topic of clock-domain crossing (CDC) verification. He identifies what are the four key issues that need to be met to achieve SoC sign-off, and what are the features that Real Intent’s Meridian CDC tool offers to handle the deluge of data that can arise in CDC analysis, and as well, work effectively with different design methodologies. I am sure you will learn something from Oren’s experience with many customers’ designs.

ARM TechCon was in Santa Clara this week and Real Intent was exhibiting at the event. TechCon was enjoying its 10th anniversary and ARM was celebrating the fact that it is at the center of the System-on-Chip (SoC) revolution.
The SoC ecosystem spans the gamut of designs from high-end servers to low-power mobile consumer segments. A large and heterogeneous set of players (foundries, IP vendors, SoC integrators, etc.) has a stake in fostering the success of the ecosystem model. While the integrated device manufacturer (IDM) model has undeniable value in terms of bringing to bear large resources in tackling technology barriers, one could argue that the rapid-fire smartphone revolution we have experienced in the last five years owes in large part to the broad-based innovation enabled by the SoC ecosystem model. How are the changing dynamics of SoCs driving changes in verification requirements, tools and flows and thereby changing the timing sign-off paradigm?
The Roomba automatic vacuum cleaner may be the most popular home robot in the world. It wakes up, wanders around your house collecting ‘dust bunnies’ and other dirt and then parks itself, where it can recharge and be ready for the next cleaning cycle.Real Intent also offers an automatic tool that cleans up your RTL code.
