Sequence Targets Sub-90nm with Next Generation PowerTheater Design Suite

2/28/2006 - Sequence Design announces the next generation of its PowerTheater design suite to meet the demanding requirements for wireless, mobile, and large SoC designs below 90nm.

"Below 90nm, power dominates all other issues," said Vic Kulkarni, Sequence president and CEO. "PowerTheater is unique in its ability to analyze and optimize power at RTL, where decisions are made that determine 80 percent of a chip's total power budget, leading to better results and faster time to market."

PowerTheater is the industry standard for low-power design at RTL, with capabilities ranging from early RTL analysis to full-chip power estimates for today's largest designs. PowerTheater allows users to begin the design process with a firm handle on power budgets before synthesis, when it is too late to optimize and complete projects with verified results that correlate to silicon. It also allows designers to inspect and probe the precise areas where power is being wasted.

New PowerTheater features enhance its RTL power analysis capabilities and usability:

Among its many industry-leading features, PowerTheater provides gate-level, time-based power analysis, providing a view of power dissipation as a function of time within a waveform display, and has strong links to CoolTime and other dynamic voltage drop tools for generating state information based on highest activity or highest power.
