Product ImageDecisions made during the architectural planning stages of the design cycle largely determine the chip’s resulting size, power consumption, performance, and cost. It’s during these early stages that design teams can realize the biggest benefits by considering and quantifying a variety of architectural options.

Cadence® InCyte Chip Estimator provides a cockpit-style environment with integrated estimation models for common foundries and IP providers, enabling rapid what-if analysis across the design solution space. Whether design teams are looking at size, power, and performance tradeoffs, low-power planning, economic analysis, or simply IC design feasibility, InCyte Chip Estimator provides an intuitive, easy-to-use environment where users don’t have to be IC design experts to achieve accurate results. And with its strong connection to IC implementation technologies (such as the Encounter Digital Implementation System), InCyte Chip Estimator allows users to export their design intent downstream and ultimately converge on size, power, performance, and cost expectations in final silicon.
