The Synopsys PrimeTime SIG is an active community for all PrimeTime users and design engineers who want to stay connected with the latest developments in the field of Static Timing Analysis (STA).
PrimeTime SIG 2011 – EDS Fair Japan
A PrimeTime SIG event was held in Yokohama, Japan during EDS Fair on January 28, 2011. One hundred PrimeTime users and managers attended the event from more than thirty semiconductor companies. The topic of this SIG event was PrimeTime’s Next Generation ECO Technology. The audience saw a preview of PrimeTime’s latest innovation in ECO guidance technology with results of 10X faster, better quality of results (QoR), and with less ECO changes. Timing experts from four major semiconductor companies participated in a question and answer panel along with Synopsys to discuss this new technology and its benefit of reducing the turn-around-time of their design cycles.
