To arrive at your targeted and optimized PPA, you will need to execute several Innovus runs with a variety of design parameters, commands, and options.
You will then need to analyze the data which could mean wading through several log files and timing reports, a time-consuming task at best.
To make it easier to visualize the data by generating an easy-to-read dashboard, Innovus now has integrated metrics commands. These commands display PPA numbers at various stages of the implementation flow as well as allow you to compare metrics for several runs. The HTML dashboard report provides useful and user-friendly data to optimize your design further.
This video demo shows you how to use the metrics commands in Innovus and also contains an example of what the output looks like.
Note: The demo is based on the default mode of Innovus and not on the Stylus mode of Innovus Stylus.
