Azuro Rubix 1.4 and PowerCentric 5.2 Clock Tree Synthesis Tools

Azuro introduced version 5.2 of PowerCentric clock tree synthesis tool and version 1.4 of Rubix clock concurrent optimization tool. Clock concurrent optimization is a new approach to clock tree synthesis which builds useful skew-based clocks concurrently with performing logic gate sizing and placement. The key defining characteristic of clock concurrent optimization is that the timing picture being considered by all its underlying algorithms is a true propagated clocks view of timing based on real propagation of clock signals through the clock network.
