"For the last few years, we have used Design Compiler’s Topographical technology to find and fix design issues during synthesis to give us predictable implementation. We see Design Compiler 2010 synthesis results closely correlating to physical results, while accelerating placement in IC Compiler by 1.5X. This tight correlation between synthesis and layout, along with faster runtimes, is exactly what we need for reducing iterations and significantly shortening design schedules in 65 nanometer and smaller process technologies."
Shih-Arn Hwang, Deputy Director R&D Center
Realtek

"Cutting design time and improving design performance are essential to keep our competitiveness in the marketplace. With the new physical guidance extension to topographical technology we are seeing 5 percent correlation between Design Compiler and IC Compiler, up to 2X faster placement in IC Compiler and better design timing. We are adopting the new technology innovations in Design Compiler to minimize iterations while meeting our design goals in shorter timeframes."
Hitoshi Sugihara, Department Manager, DFM & Digital EDA Technology Development
Renesas Technology Corp.
