Design analysis and exploration

DesignAdvisor is a comprehensive design constraints management solution of modern SoC design. As the complexity of a SoC is increasing, a clock network is often made up of hundred of clocks and the validation of clock constraints is inevitable. The requirement of lower power consumption of SoC results in the implementation of various lower power design techniques with carefully validated design constraints. DesignAdvisor offers the logical design rule check of the design, low power design constraints management and the clock design constraints management features.
