Sequence Design's PowerTheater has added new 'timing-aware' RTL power analysis features to address the twin challenges of shrinking process geometries and high-performance devices driving hundreds of clock domains.
The changes result in accurate, timing-aware RTL power analysis in addition to the 10X 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. Additionally, RTL designers can perform 'what-if' performance power analysis utilizing newly added micro-architectures for arithmetic operators. 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.
The RTL power accuracy enhancements will apply across the broad spectrum of design applications supporting hundreds of clock domains with widely ranging frequencies.
