Extreme DA to Demonstrate GoldTime at Design Automation Conference

In booth 1364 at the 45th Design Automation Conference (DAC), Extreme DA[tm] will exhibit the newest version of its next-generation timing sign-off solution, GoldTime[tm], now with multi-dimensional optimization (MXO[tm]). The fast-growing company is the emerging leader in next-generation timing analysis software that improves the performance and yield of nanometer integrated circuits (ICs) with unmatched speed and analysis capacity and addresses process variations in semiconductor designs.

Extreme DA in Booth 1364

  • Extreme DA will provide informal demonstrations of the newest version of GoldTime, which now includes Extreme’s new MXO technology that delivers tape-out success across operational modes and corners and is 5X faster than traditional tools such as Synopsys’ PrimeTime.
  • Exhibit visitors can complete a brief survey to share with Extreme DA their opinions on crucial IC design issues.
  • Everyone who views a presentation or completes a survey will automatically be entered to win a 32GB Apple iTouch.
  • Extreme DA technologists will be on hand to talk with attendees about IC designs and how to achieve faster timing sign-off.
  • Extreme DA will host private meetings in its suites to demonstrate the new features and benefits of GoldTime and share its technology roadmap.
  • Suite presentations will include:
    • GoldTime Timing Analysis — The New Standard in Sign-off Timing
      What’s 5X faster than PrimeTime and uses less memory? What enables true multi-mode, multi-corner reporting and data consolidation in a single session? Which tool provides leading-edge IDMs with a distinct time to market advantage? Extreme DA has the answers in GoldTime timing analysis. Discover how GoldTime transforms your existing design closure and sign-off timing flows to new standards of capacity and performance.
    • ROAD[tm] — The Path to Transistor-level Statistical Optimization
      ROAD statistical optimization at the transistor level is a new generation tool that goes beyond statistical analysis. Targeted toward standard cell, memory, and mixed-signal designers, ROAD out-performs traditional Monte Carlo analysis by 10X or more, allowing for the first time ever, a practical statistical optimization flow. Get the details on why 45nm design teams world-wide have adopted ROAD.
    • Statistical STA — The Time Is Now (Tutorial)
      No longer a future concern, process variation and timing uncertainty are here at 45nm. Refresh what you’ve heard, but perhaps ignored, in the last two years regarding local and global variation and its impact on design performance and yield. Discover how Extreme DA solutions have found problems missed by corner-based analysis.
