Apache Design to Hold IP Validation Hands-On Tutorial at DAC

Apache Design Solutions will host a hands-on tutorial at this years’ 45th Design Automation Conference (DAC), titled “IP Validation for Macro and Embedded SoC.” The tutorial gives attendees first-hand experience in running Apache’s products for validating embedded macro, analyzing full-chip power including package, and generating portable power delivery network model for co-design.

Hands-on-Tutorial titled “IP Validation for Macro and Embedded SoC
Design Automation Conference
Anaheim Convention Center
Room 213D
2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., PDT
Monday, June 9, 2008

Specifically the tutorial will cover the following:

  • Block-level power analysis of a full-custom IP from Virage Logic using RedHawk-MMX
  • Package model extraction using PakSi-E
  • Full-chip power analysis including validated custom IP and package models using RedHawk-EV
  • Chip Power Model generation using RedHawk-CPM

About Apache Design Solutions
Apache delivers the leading power signoff solution adopted by 80% of the top IDM, fabless semiconductor, and foundries and a complete platform for silicon integrity of low-power, high-performance system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs. Apache’s innovative platform considers multiple noise sources that impact the design—such as power, signal, package/system IO, substrate, and temperature—and enables designers to detect, fix, and prevent design weaknesses that can result in reduced yield or failed silicon and/or system. Apache’s vendor-neutral solution supports any industry-standard physical design flow and is certified by TSMC and Common Platform Reference Flows. Apache is a global company with R&D centers and direct sales/support offices worldwide.
