Achieving the required performance using the lowest possible power is critical for every SoC design. Making sure the closure on performance and power are achieved in a time-frame as determined by market is key for success of a chip. However in today's SoC designs with numerous clocks and dozens of power domains, the problem is magnified many times over. With 100's of clocks and dozens of power domains, design teams take too many iterations to achieve closure, and often many companies settle for a performance lower than required, just to meet the time to market needs.
The design and implementation of clock circuits have a direct impact on timing and power. The products, ClockExplorerTM , Empyrean-XTime, and Empyrean-XTop make up a powerful design closure solution.
