Altos Design Automation and Extreme DA developed a signal-integrity (SI) design flow for integrated circuit (IC) designs manufactured at process nodes of 65-nanometers (nm) and below. Extreme DA GoldTime for use with Altos Variety and Liberate models is available now from Extreme DA. Pricing varies depending on configuration. Altos Variety and Liberate approved libraries for Extreme DA GoldTime are available now from Altos.
Variety MX, from Altos Design Automation, is a fast and accurate statistical timing model generator for embedded memories. Variety MX generates instance-specific Liberty models for use by Cadence’s Encounter Timing System GXL, Extreme DA’s Goldtimetm, and Synopsys PrimeTime VX. Variety MX is able to characterize memory sizes that cannot be adequately simulated using brute Monte Carlo methods or even with fast sampling techniques. Variety MX is available now.
