PrimeTime SIG 2009 Videolog 

Increasing design size and complexity are putting tremendous pressure on design schedules. Static timing analysis (STA) and the newly emerging field of constraint analysis are key technologies used throughout the design process to accelerate design closure. As these technologies rapidly advance, it's essential for design teams to stay abreast of the latest developments to help maximize their effectiveness and throughput.

PrimeTime SIG 2009

In July 2009, Synopsys hosted two PrimeTime SIG events in Bangalore, India and San Francisco, CA focused on STA performance and productivity, as well as new timing constraints management technology. Hear what experts from leading companies had to say about taking advantage of the latest PrimeTime features to boost productivity.
