Reducing Risk and Time-to-Tape-out in EDA

Modern electronic devices depend on integrated circuits (chips) that contnuously grow in complexity due to consumer demand for more features and performance. With each new chip design, engineers wrestle with increasing gate counts, smaller geometries, and shrinking market windows. The resultng growth in complexity means that design simulaton and verifcaton become critcal to successful frst-pass chip tape-outs. The result is tremendous pressure on both Engineering and IT to keep chips on schedule and within budget.
