With more and more designs
employing low power design techniques, the need to accurately verify these low
power structures is critical. Unfortunately, the complexity associated with low
power design often increases the complexity of low power
The good news is that the
Incisive Unified Simulator has automated the low power verification process.
Without need for custom PLI development, complex TCL scripts, complicated
library development, or RTL customization, many low power design constructs can
be seamlessly verified in the Incisive environment.
The following demo will
illustrate the verification of a design that employs power shut-off. The demo will
- Specification of low power
design intent using the Common Power Format (CPF)
- Simulation of the PSO
operation in Incisive
- The graphical debugging
environment in SimVision
