High-Performance Interface Enables Early and Accurate Power Profiling of Real-Time Applications (Ansys)

New ANSYS PowerArtist PAVES dynamic streaming interface leverages emulation capacity and performance

PITTSBURGH, July 1, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Driven by the growing demand for energy-efficient handheld and smart devices, engineers using solutions from ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS) with emulation can now deliver up to a 4.5X performance boost for early power profiling compared to the traditional file based data approach without compromising accuracy. This solution allows early and accurate register transfer level (RTL) power budgeting of real-time applications such as operating system and firmware boot up, 1080p and ultra-high definition video frames.

ANSYS® PAVES™ (PowerArtist Vector Streaming™) socket interface combined with Mentor's Veloce® Power Application software demonstrates the first delivery of highly effective data streaming capability. This allows designers to identify high power consumption areas in the design for application-level scenarios and enables them to perform better power exploration and tradeoff early at the RTL level. ANSYS® PACE's™ (PowerArtist™ Calibration and Estimation™) unique technology provides physical-aware RTL power analysis that further enhances accuracy. It demonstrated a 10% RTL clock power accuracy compared to gate-level analyses for 16 and 14-nanometer (nm) designs.

"PowerArtist PAVES is an innovative technology that makes rapid power analysis of complex real-world application scenarios possible," said Vic Kulkarni, vice president and general manager, ANSYS. "By connecting through Veloce Application Dynamic Read Waveform API, customers are able to reach faster power closure with greater confidence."

"Mentor has redefined the power analysis flow with Veloce Power Application and the new Dynamic Waveform Read API," said Eric Selosse, vice president and general manager of the Mentor Emulation Division. "We are pleased with the close collaboration with ANSYS that allows customers to achieve more accurate power analysis using Veloce and PowerArtist."
