It was refreshing to see what happened when John Cooley made his latest request for reader feedback on his popular
DeepChip website catering to the semiconductor design community. A request had
come in from a previous DeepChip post prior to the Design Automation Conference (DAC) as follows:
My hunch is that many current or prospective synthesis users
will find this DeepChip article useful when selecting a solution. I created a
clearly non un-biased summary below for those of you taping out this week and
unable to read the whole post:
from DC to RC was like going from night into day for us."
While not surprising to folks here at Cadence who have been
seeing the benefits RC can deliver for years now, these results may be very interesting
to users who have been trudging along working with the status quo synthesis
solution. At the very least if this many DeepChip readers are reporting better
results, cleaner flows, and more responsive support don't you owe it to your
design team to take a deeper look yourself?
Food for thought....
