May 1, 2012
SAN JOSE, Calif — May 1, 2012 — Atrenta Inc., a leading provider of SoC Realization solutions for the semiconductor and electronic systems industries, announced today the availability of release 4.7 of its SpyGlass® RTL analysis and optimization platform.
This latest release of SpyGlass delivers automated RTL power reduction that is, on average, 2X more effective across a broad range of designs when compared to previous releases. Run-time and memory usage have also been enhanced in 4.7 – customers have reported running 280 million gate designs flat through SpyGlass in four hours.
Many of the analysis features of SpyGlass have also been improved. UPF 2.0 support has been extended in SpyGlass Power Verify. A unique power intent-aware CDC analysis has been introduced that enables early verification of CDC issues around isolation logic at RTL. Glitch detection reporting has been enhanced and SpyGlass DFT DSM now provides at-speed testability analysis that is more comprehensive. SpyGlass Constraints analysis now enables designers to consolidate SDCs associated with different modes into a single SDC through an SDC mode merge capability.
New features in SpyGlass 4.7 include an improved user interface for SpyGlass Physical that provides designers the capability to quickly analyze and pinpoint logical congestion issues within their RTL. Also included in this release is a unique design complexity analysis addition to SpyGlass Advanced Lint based on cyclomatic metrics. The Atrenta Console graphical user interface also provides several usability enhancements for netlist and schematic viewing.
“The SpyGlass platform is helping our customers produce higher quality RTL, resulting in faster time to market and improved IP reuse," said Mike Gianfagna, vice president of marketing at Atrenta. "The 4.7 release of the platform contains many enhancements and several new features that respond directly to our customer’s requests. I am confident the new version will see wide deployment.”
