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
- Supports both RTL and gate-level power estimation
- Enables high-performance system-level power estimation to identify peaks and calculate averages on long runs
- Realistic in-circuit emulation environment allows you to estimate power under real operating conditions
Cadence® Palladium® Dynamic Power Analysis (DPA) uniquely enables engineers using emulation to also analyze software in a system-level environment. The solution’s ability to run various design or implementation scenarios--and determine their impact on power dissipation under a realistic application environment--is vital to striking a balance between power budget and expected performance. Additionally, the solution delivers power calculation by capturing the necessary power activities in a common DPA power database. This capability further enables the sharing of verification resources while DPA is computing the power profile offline.
Cadence Joules™ RTL Power Solution can be used directly within Palladium DPA for time-based power calculations. With this integration, you gain enhanced production-correlated peak power analysis. You can analyze the power draw of complex hardware-software system-level operations early in your development cycle, so you can explore architecture trade-offs between power and performance. The combined solution assesses toggle counts and accurate peak power calculations while performing simulations in milliseconds vs. the days or months that software simulation would require.
