Calypto to Present Sequential Optimizations for Low Power Design

Anmol Mathur, chief architect at Calypto(TM) Design Systems Inc., the leader in sequential analysis technology, will present at the In-Stat Microprocessor Forum technical session on Power Efficient Performance for Multimedia Applications. Mathur’s presentation, titled, “Sequential Optimizations for Low Power Design,” will describe several power optimization techniques, their tradeoffs and the impact on verification Monday, May 21, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, Calif.

Also, Calypto will offer demonstrations of its low-power solutions, including new PowerPro(TM) CG (Clock Gating) and SLEC(TM) (Sequential Logic Equivalence Checking), during the Microprocessor Forum Expo and Demo Showcase Tuesday, May 22, from 5-8 p.m.

PowerPro CG reduces power consumption by applying sequential analysis at the register transfer level (RTL) to identify micro-architectural optimizations for a lower power circuit. By analyzing the sequential behavior of synthesizable RTL across multiple clock cycles, it identifies regions of a chip that can be clock gated to reduce dynamic power. PowerPro then automatically generates the clock-gating enable logic, providing consistently better results in significantly less time than the error prone, time consuming manual techniques used by design teams today.
