PrimeTime HyperScale Technology – Extending Static Timing Analysis Beyond 500 Million Instances
PrimeTime SIG 2010 Luncheon
October 27, 2010
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Synopsys, Building 2, 455 North Mary Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085

Static timing users are benefiting from the runtime boost offered by multicore-enabled software like PrimeTime. However, as more design teams are developing SoCs in the range of 50 to 100 million instances, achieving overnight turnaround for full-chip STA requires new thinking and new static timing innovation. In June 2010, Synopsys announced PrimeTime HyperScale technology, delivering the next 5-10X boost in performance and capacity for large full-chip STA.

Attendees will get first-hand information from early users on deploying Synopsys’ PrimeTime HyperScale technology and how it works in concert with the hierarchical physical implementation methodology used to design large SoCs to deliver a significant productivity boost. The presentation by Synopsys R&D will provide insight on two key PrimeTime HyperScale technology innovations: 1) reuse of block-level timing information without the limitations of previous generations of timing models; and 2) auto updating of block and chip timing context for faster timing convergence.
