SAN FRANCISOSequence Design said Tuesday (Oct. 21) it has added "timing-aware" RTL power analysis features to its PowerTheater power analysis and prototyping tool.
The changes, Sequence says, result in accurate, timing-aware RTL power analysis in addition to the productivity boost that RTL power management provides over gate-level.
Sequence's RTL power analysis now takes into consideration clock domain frequencies to even more closely predict synthesized results, Sequence said. PowerArtist RTL power reduction, with the capability to quantify power savings at RTL before any RTL edits are made, benefits directly by utilizing the same power calculation engine as PowerTheater, according to the company.
According to Sequence (Santa Clara, Calif.), the new features will help designers cope with the challenges of shrinking process geometries and high-performance devices driving hundreds of clock domains.
