Palladium Dynamic Power Analysis represents a methodology shift for power budgeting of electronic devices with system-level implications. With a focus on productivity improvement, DPA helps to quickly identify the average and peak power consumption of SoC designs running real software in various operational scenarios. Leveraging Palladium III’s built-in memory and RTL Compiler power estimation engine, Cadence provides the first high-performance, cycle-accurate integrated solution delivering full-system power analysis of designs, including both hardware and software.
In recognition of their achievement, Portable Design names Cadence Incisive Palladium Dynamic Power Analysis its September 2008 Product of the Month.
