Questa Signoff CDC uses automated, advanced structural analysis algorithms optimized for gate-level analysis, as well as automated leveraging of waiver and CDC path information from Questa CDC RTL analysis for exacting, “low noise” results.
Low noise, high accuracy
Fewest false alarms in the industry, so you don’t waste time chasing non-issues, and instead can quickly root cause and resolve actual design flaws. Tight integration with the Questa CDC RTL verification app, reusing all the CDC path and waiver information created at the RTL level to expedite the gate-level analysis and significantly reduce “noise” from false negatives.
Questa Signoff CDC high performance analysis can process over 100-million-gate designs, and its hierarchical capabilities enable unlimited capacity.
Automatically infers clock grouping, re-groups logic belonging to CDC synchronization structures, and re-groups any “bit blasted” busses to prevent redundant violation reports. Supports advanced hierarchical methods to maximize turn-around time. Direct re-use of Questa CDC RTL-level setup information, constraints, waivers and results. Automated SDC import and debug and Liberty models are also supported.
Questa Signoff CDC runs deep formal analysis on automatically generated assertions, integrating structural, functional and formal algorithms to verify gate-level CDC structures and automatically identifying glitches that might be introduced during the synthesis and implementation process.
Verification Academy provides the skills necessary to mature an organization's functional verification process capabilities, providing a methodological bridge between high-level value propositions and the low-level details.
Insight and updates on concepts, values, standards, methodologies, and examples to assist with the understanding of what advanced functional verification technologies can do and how to most effectively apply them.
