Are you interested to know how to deal with low power challenges during design synthesis?
Optimizing power can be a very convoluted and crucial process. To make design chips meet throughput goals along with optimal power consumption, you need to plan right from the beginning!
Low-Power synthesis is one of the important stages in the full IC flow. Here, you synthesize the design from behavioral description to gates, while optimizing for dynamic and leakage power using various techniques. We understand that it is not always easy to estimate power, but Cadence offers a solution in the form of low-power synthesis flow with Genus.
Using Low-Power Synthesis Flow in Genus Synthesis Solution, you can:
There is a ONE-STOP solution to all these queries in the form of videos on “Low-Power Synthesis Flow with Genus”; refer to the training on https://support.cadence.com (Cadence login required).
This training contains a series of narrated lectures for the Low-Power Synthesis Flow with Genus. The course name is ‘Low-Power Synthesis Flow with Genus Stylus Common UI’ . In this training, you explore and implement several low-power techniques to reduce both dynamic and leakage power during synthesis. You use multiple-supply voltage (MSV) design, power shutoff (PSO) synthesis and dynamic voltage frequency scaling (DVFS) synthesis flow in Genus. You run low-power flow using CPF and IEEE 1801 and troubleshoot a low-power design for Genus. You apply formal verification to validate your power constraints and ensure the functionality of a low-power design.
Lab materials are not included. If interested in the full course, including lab content, please contact your Cadence representative or email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also enroll in this course on http://learning.cadence.com.
