Have you heard the news?!?!?
Batch Mode Utility to Extract Clock Trees: nClockTree
The Verdi™ Automated Debug System with the nAnalyzer™ Design Analysis module provides full functions for extracting clock trees and qualifying CTS (Clock Tree Synthesis) settings. However, the clock tree extraction has to be processed in the Verdi system with the nAnalyzer module so the debug time may be occupied especially if the gate level netlist is vast.
To reduce the effort of extracting clock trees every time (especially when there aren’t any changes to the design), the Verdi system provides a batch mode utility nClockTree to do the clock tree extraction in batch mode and save the results in a loadable file.
Conditional Alias for Viewing Waveforms
The waveform view (nWave window) in the Verdi™ Automated Debug System provides the capability to attach an alias to the waveform value which gives a better way to visualize the waveform. Now the capability has been further improved for adding conditions, so that the tool can automatically determine which alias table (when there are multiple tables) should be applied based on user-defined conditions.
The New Laker ADP Simulation Console
The Laker™ Advanced Design Platform (ADP) unites the full-featured Laker schematic editor, open Simulation Console and LakerWave™ waveform analyzer to create a complete circuit design environment. It works seamlessly with SpringSoft’s award-winning Laker Custom IC Layout system and all of the popular analog simulators to provide a complete solution for the rapid design of your analog, mixed-signal, memory, and custom digital IC designs.
