The new version features unified placement and physical optimization engines, as well as machine learning (ML) capabilities to provide up to 3X faster throughput and up to 20% improved PPA. New features include:
• iSpatial technology, which integrates the Innovus Implementation System’s GigaPlace Placement Engine and the GigaOpt Optimizer into the Genus Synthesis Solution. The technology provides techniques such as layer assignment, useful clock skew and via pillars. iSpatial technology also allows a seamless transition from Genus physical synthesis to Innovus implementation with a common user interface and database.
• ML capabilities allow developers to use existing designs to train the iSpatial optimization technology to minimize design margins versus traditional place and route flows.
• Optimal signoff convergence with the digital full flow integrating unified implementation, timing- and IR-signoff engines, that offers enhanced signoff convergence by concurrently closing the design for all physical, timing and reliability targets.
Cadence digital full flow is made up from the company’s Innovus Implementation System, Genus Synthesis Solution, Tempus Timing Signoff Solution and Voltus IC Power Integrity Solution.
