Questa Power-Aware Simulator

Overview

Questa Power-Aware Simulator

The Questa Power-Aware Simulator enables design teams to verify the active power management planned for implementation, but starting much earlier in the design process. Static checks during UPF compilation locate architectural issues, while dynamic checks during simulation find behavioral issues.

Questa Simulation tools enable design teams to verify the architecture and behavior planned for an implementation.

Questa Power-Aware Simulator Resources

Verification of active power management at the RTL stage makes it possible to explore alternative power management approaches long before implementation begins, to achieve the greatest power reduction at the least cost.

Key Features

Questa Power-Aware Simulator

Effects of active power management on the design’s structure and behavior are reflected in the waveform, schematic, and power state/transition views. The Questa Power-Aware Simulator automatically detects power management errors in both the architecture and behavior of the power management system.

Dynamic and static checking

Automatic Detection of Power Management Errors

Automatically detects power management errors in both the architecture and the behavior of the power management system. Static checks during compilation of the UPF identify architectural issues, while dynamic checks during simulation identify behavioral issues.

Questa Simulation tools enable design teams to verify the architecture and behavior planned for an implementation.

Integration with verification

Power State/Transition Coverage Data Collection

Power states and transitions are recorded in the Unified Coverage DataBase (UCDB) for integration with verification planning and management. This data enables incorporation of power-aware simulation goals into the verification plan so they can be tracked for coverage closure.

Questa Simulation tools enable design teams to verify the architecture and behavior planned for an implementation.

Ease of use

Visualization and Debugging

Three views (waveform, schematic, and power state/transition) enable designers to find and resolve issues in the power management system quickly and efficiently.
