Docea Enhances What-if Power Analysis and Optimization for Architectures, Use Case

  • Aceplorer Improves System-Level Performance and Power Trade Off Analysis Using Interoperability with Virtual Platforms
  • New Demo Showcases Automatic Scanning of Power Reduction Techniques Efficiencies and Architecture Exploration

San Diego, CA, June 2, 2011 – At the 48th Design Automation Conference (DAC), DoceaPower, the design-for-low-power company that delivers software for power consumption andthermal analysis at the architectural level, will show and introduce an enhanced version of its flagship software product, Aceplorer 2.3, with a synthetic view for capturing the powerarchitecture of complex designs. This enables what-if analysis and optimization for hardwarearchitecture and the target applications’ use cases. Aceplorer models and optimizes electronicdesign power consumption, early in the design cycle, at the architectural level.

Aceplorer 2.3’s new features are built on top of a parameterized power models library. Theyallow users to set up a complex system design with any number of Intellectual Property (IP)cores and blocks, voltage clusters or clock domain distributions at a fraction of the time neededwith any other methodology. The benefit is making more time available for in-depth explorationof the design space. 

DAC Demonstrations

At DAC, Docea is demonstrating automatic scanning of power reduction techniques efficiencieson a design (dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS), clock gating, power gating andany combination thereof) and enabling architects to make better quality design decisions early inthe process.

Docea Power’s Aceplorer interoperability with Synopsys Electronic System Level (ESL) products is being demonstrated at Synopsys’ Standards Booth. This interoperability facilitates the import ofpower-related information for building complex and accurate dynamic scenarios, using performance analysis conducted on virtual platforms.

NXP GoldVIP: Integration Platform for Intelligent Connected Vehicles

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Today’s intelligent connected vehicle designs are smarter and safer than ever before and this has a lot to do with a rapidly increasing technological convergence of sensors, machine learning, over the air updates, in-vehicle high bandwidth networking and more. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Brian Carlson from NXP about NXP’s new GoldVIP Platform. They examine the benefits that this kind of software integration platform can bring to automotive designs and how you can take a test drive of the GoldVIP for yourself.
