Real Intent Launches Verix PhyCDC – the Next Innovation in SoC Design Sign-off

New Analysis Tool Brings Giga-Scale Capacity and Fastest Analysis to Gate-Level Designs

SUNNYVALE, CA– (June 18, 2018) – Real Intent, Inc., a leading provider of SoC and FPGA sign-off verification solutions, today announced Verix PhyCDC – a new tool to debug clock domain crossing violations at the gate level netlist of digital designs. Complementing Real Intent’s Verix CDC solution for RTL sign-off, Verix PhyCDC maintains Real Intent’s product leadership in delivering the industry’s fastest-performance, highest-capacity and most precise CDC solutions in the market.

Verix PhyCDC targets the post-synthesis stage of SoC design at the gate level, where physical implementation tools can introduce changes that might cause unintended signal noise and functional failures. It leverages the results from RTL CDC to identify incremental CDC paths and constraints to optimize the CDC analysis at gate level while providing maximum coverage. Verix PhyCDC addresses malfunctions such as glitching on control signals, clock networks and data signal paths; and incorrect optimization of clock synchronizer logic. Verix PhyCDC also includes iDebug, Real Intent’s state-of-the-art design intent debugger and data manager.

Ramesh Dewangan, vice president of product strategy at Real Intent, said, “CDC verification traditionally has been targeted at RTL sign-off before physical implementation begins. The CDC problems introduced during synthesis along with the addition of test logic and low-power optimizations are risk factors for SoC designs at the physical implementation stage. With the largest capacity of any tool in the industry, Verix PhyCDC provides verification without sacrificing precision. Its easy setup by reusing constraints from RTL, parallel processing to significantly reduce runtime, and incremental sign-off through diff analysis gives implementation teams the fastest pathway for RTL + Netlist CDC sign-off. They can be confident the designs they are handing off to tape-out are free of CDC bugs.”

Real Intent will give presentations on Verix PhyCDC in Booth #1431 during the Design Automation Conference in San Francisco, June 25 to 27. Appointment times can be arranged here.

For more information on Verix PhyCDC, a white paper and data sheet are available.

Secure Authentication ICs for Disposable and Accessory Ecosystems
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip
Secure authentication for disposable and accessory ecosystems is a critical element for many embedded systems today. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Xavier Bignalet from Microchip discuss the benefits of Microchip’s Trust Platform design suite and how it can provide the security you need for your next embedded design. They investigate the value of symmetric authentication and asymmetric authentication and the roles that parasitic power and package size play in these kinds of designs.
