Cadence is committed to keeping design teams highly productive. A range of support offerings and processes helps Cadence users focus on reducing time-to-market and achieving silicon success. Overview
- Characterizes large macro blocks efficiently and accurately
- Delivers fast runtime
- Performs independently accurate SPICE characterization runs
- TÜV SÜD “Fit for Purpose – TCL1” certified to meet ISO 26262 automotive functional safety requirements
The Cadence® Virtuoso® Liberate™ MX memory characterization solution extends Cadence’s ultra-fast standard cell and I/O library characterization capabilities to cover larger macro blocks such as memory and custom cores. Macro blocks require additional pre-analysis steps in order to make fast and accurate characterization feasible. The Liberate MX solution leverages a network of distributed CPUs and utilizes the patented Inside View technology for optimizing characterization runtime. In this way, memories and cores can be characterized quickly and easily with the same accuracy and methods as standard cells, including the generation of timing constraints and modeling of current source models for timing and noise.
