There is no better way other than a
self-help training kit -- (rapid adoption kit, or RAK) -- to demonstrate the Incisive
Enterprise Simulator's IEEE 1801 / UPF low-power features and its usage. The
- Unique SimVision debugging
- Patent-pending power supply network visualization and
- Tcl extensions for LP debugging
- Support for Liberty file power description
- Standby mode support
- Support for Verilog, VHDL, and mixed language
- Automatic understanding of complex feedthroughs
- Replay of initial blocks
- ‘x' corruption for integers and enumerated types
- Automatic understanding of loop variables
- Automatic support for analog interconnections
Mickey Rodriguez, AVS
Staff Solutions Engineer has developed a low power UPF-based RAK, which is now
available on Cadence Online Support for you to download.
- This rapid adoption kit illustrates Incisive Enterprise
Simulator (IES) support for the IEEE 1801 power intent standard.
Patent-Pending Power Supply Network Browser.
(Only available with the LP option to IES)
- In addition to an overview of IES features, SimVision and Tcl
debug features, a lab is provided to give the user an opportunity to try
The complete RAK and associated
overview presentation can be downloaded from our SoC and Functional
Verification RAK page:

We are covering the following
technologies through our RAKs at this moment:
Synthesis, Test and Verification flow
Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI)
System and Sign-off Flow
Virtuoso Custom IC and Sign-off Flow
SOC and IP level Functional
System level verification and
validation with Palladium XP
