Delivers Spice-accurate Power Integrity Verification and Sign-off for Advanced Process Low Power Design
San Jose CA, Tokyo Japan, – September 29th 2010 -- GRID Simulation Technology, Inc. (GST), a Silicon Valley-based Electronic Design Automation (EDA) company announced today it has joined the ARM® Connected Community® eco-system of partners, the industry’s largest ecosystem of ARM technology-based products and services. As part of the ARM Connected Community, GST gains access to the full range of ARM resources to market and deploy innovative solutions to IC design teams looking for a faster way to get their ARM Powered® products to market.
“We are excited to be working with ARM, their customers, and foundry partners to deliver a much needed solution to address power integrity challenges in ARM based designs implemented in advanced processes,” said John L. Kulusich, VP Business Development at GST. “At 65nm and below, the need for SPICE-accurate electromigration and IR drop (EMIR) verification and sign-off has moved to center stage. NanoRAIL-TR and SimCHECK provides today’s ARM customers a breakthrough in capacity, accuracy and speed of analysis. The ARM ecosystem can now use a new hierarchical methodology for analysis of power/ground/substrate networks and critical signal and clock nets in complex, giga-scale, low power designs.”
NanoRAIL-TR provides ARM designers SPICE-accurate EMIR analysis with 100% nodal reporting and traceability of nodal and branch current density values mapped directly to the physical netlist of IP blocks and complex SoCs. NanoRAIL-TR’s unique hierarchical, parallel, and distributed architecture (HPDA™) scales sub-linearly on today’s multi-core systems and integrates easily with popular EDA tools in customer flows utilizing standard industry formats. Using NanoRAIL-TR analysis, ARM customers achieve a seamless closed loop power integrity ECO and EMIR verification flow with 100% visibility and traceability of nodal values, independent loops, and total power consumption.
SimCHECK provides numeric verification of EMIR simulation results from IR Drop or electromigration analysis tools. SimCHECK produces a detailed hierarchical summary report providing 100% visibility and traceability of nodal values, independent loops, and total power consumption. SimCHECK automatically identifies, reports, and maps non-compliant nodes to the exact location on the physical netlist to support a seamless, closed loop, power integrity ECO and EMIR verification and sign-off flow.
