Thermal simulation tool cuts product development time

Thermal simulation tool cuts product development time
Thermal performance is crucial in electronics designs and getting it wrong can mean a redesign or even a product recall that costs an awful lot of money and damage to reputation. A solution which heads off these problems has been enhanced in Release 9 of 6Sigma ET, a powerful, intuitive and easy-to-learn thermal simulation tool for use by designers of electronic components and products.

Compression tool accelerates SoC design time

Synopsys says that VIA Technologies has successfully taped out a system-on-chip (SoC) design using Synopsys' DFTMAX Ultra compression, meeting test time and quality goals. The need to shorten test time in conjunction with increasing design complexity drove VIA Technologies requirement for higher test compression. DFTMAX Ultra and Synopsys' TetraMAX ATPG delivered 11X higher compression while maintaining high test quality and requiring only one week to deploy.
