Ageia Technologies Selects PicoCraft for Clock Domain Analysis

Add comment December 31st, 2005 Administrator

[December 2005] After a thorough evaluation, Ageia Technologies has selected PicoCraft’s GPP Clock Domain Analysis tool to assist in the design and verification of their next generation of physics processing chips.

GPP is a Clock Domain Profiler and Analysis tool that leverages industry standard Static Timing environment and library setups to rapidly identify likely Synchronization Errors in the final tape-out netlist for high clock-count multi-million gate SOC designs. GPP complements the capabilities of current static timing tools, enabling design teams to quickly determine if clock definitions and case setups are well formed and zeroing in on asynchronous clock domain crossing problems and related challenges in the scan chain integrity checks.

DAC Panel The Business of Standards

2 comments June 16th, 2005 Administrator

PicoCraft’s Sean Murphy was one of three panelists (Karen Bartleson of Synopsys and Dave Kelf of Novas, with Gabe Moretti moderating) addressing these issues: EDA consumers and EDA developers look at the problem of interoperability differently. Standards can define how you want to compete in the marketplace; i.e., what you choose to commoditize vs. what you don’t. There is obviously a technical aspect to standardization, but there is also a critical business angle to consider. This panel can help the audience to look at the business problem from a range of perspectives. It can help attendees think about why you engage in standards efforts and what your objectives should be.

This is an updated upgraded version of an earlier panel that given at the October 25, 2004 Synopsys Interoperability Forum that Peggy Aycinena covered after she moderated it.
