Synopsys PrimeTime 2009.06 Linux

::::::English Description::::::

Timing closure in today抯 advanced designs remains the number one challenge for designers today, especially at 90-nanometers (nm) and below. A trusted timing sign-off solution that accurately models and predicts silicon behavior is required to enable designers to quickly achieve timing closure.

The PrimeTime STA Solution
The Synopsys PrimeTime static timing analysis solution is the most trusted and advanced timing sign-off solution for gate-level designs. It is the industry抯 de-facto gold standard for gate-level static timing analysis and is a key component of the Galaxy?Design Platform.

With a wide breadth of sign-off analysis capabilities, the PrimeTime STA solution provides a comprehensive and unmatched environment for timing sign-off and serves as an industry yardstick for timing analysis and sign-off. It delivers to designers extensive timing analysis checks, advanced analysis techniques, golden delay calculator, advanced modeling, unmatched productivity and ease of use, a graphical user interface, and industry-wide ASIC vendor sign-off and foundry support.

The PrimeTime Suite
The trusted PrimeTime static timing analysis solution provides the foundation and environment for a suite of extensions in sign-off analysis. In addition to timing analysis, the PrimeTime SI, PrimeTime PX, and PrimeTime VX solutions deliver extensions for signal integrity analysis, leakage and dynamic power analysis, and variation-aware analysis.
