SAN JOSE, Calif., 10 Mar 2015
The Innovus Implementation System provides high-quality placement optimization via the new GigaPlace placement engine, which enabled MaxLinear to implement multi-million cell blocks while realizing significant die-size area savings. In addition, Innovus Implementation System features core algorithms, including for placement, that have been enhanced with multi-threading to provide significant speedup on industry-standard hardware with 8 to 16 CPUs.
"Our products enable the reception of broadband data and video content, requiring high levels of performance, small silicon die-size, and rapid time to market," . "Innovus Implementation System has provided us with unprecedented full-flow speed-up, so we can deliver reliable designs to market faster. Moving to a flat design flow using Innovus Implementation System enabled significant area gains while reducing the turnaround time to about a day."
"The Innovus Implementation System was designed to improve the overall productivity of physical design engineering teams, and we've seen many customers, including MaxLinear, improve both quality of results and turnaround time simultaneously," said Dr. Anirudh Devgan, senior vice president of the Digital and Signoff Group at Cadence. "Achieving die-size area savings and significantly faster runtime enabled reduced development costs for these large designs."
