20X Power Analysis Performance Improvement with Synopsys Verdi Technologies
Discover how Synopsys' Verdi technologies, Siloti Correlation and Siloti What-If Replay Simulation, can enable up to 20X performance improvement for power analysis – from weeks to hours. These technologies enable the use of RTL simulation results to generate gate-level simulation data without the need to bring up the gate-level environment, thus enabling power analysis at early stages of the design cycle. Also included is parallel run technology to enhance performance up to 60X compared to the original flow.

VCS Xprop: Catch X-Related Issues at RTL to Reduce Time-Consuming Gate-Level Simulations
In this webinar you'll learn about a new technology in VCS, called Xprop, which eliminates 'x' optimism at RTL to enable correlation with hardware design behavior. Xprop can be used to reduce and potentially eliminate gate-level simulations for 'x' validation. This webinar will also show how VCS® Xprop eliminates 'x' optimism in advanced simulation flows (such as VCS-NLP) and demonstrate how to debug 'x'-related issues identified by VCS-NLP and Xprop using Verdi™ Power-Aware Debug.
