Optimizing Datapath for Better PPA: Save area with smart micro-architecture selection

Architectural-level PPA Optimization: The Genus Synthesis Solution introduces a new proprietary algorithm to identify critical datapath regions in a design regardless of their physical or logical module hierarchy. For each of these regions, the solution considers a number of possible micro-architectures with different power, performance, and area (PPA) trade-offs. It then builds and solves an analytical model over all datapath regions to achieve the globally best PPA for the design. This technology can reduce datapath area by up to 20% without any impact on performance.
