Real Intent launched version five of their Meridian CDC tool. The new hierarchical CDC flow supports partitioned analysis of designs without sacrificing top-level full-chip precision for giga-scale sign-off. Meridian CDC’s hierarchical flow avoids the compromises found with abstract-modeling and the use of waivers in other products. Meridian CDC v5.0 will be available July 1, 2013. Pricing depends on product configuration.
