Excellicon Products Used by LG Electronics to Develop a Robust, Efficient End to End Timing Constraint Development Methodology
September 20, 2016
Excellicon Inc., an innovative provider of Timing Constraints Analysis and Debugging solutions for the automation of constraints authoring, completion, validation, and Management, today announced LG Electronics, a global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications, and home appliances, has licensed Excellicon Constraints products. The End to End Solution is expected to speed delivery schedules in LG build flow.
Generation and validation of constraints is a challenge spread across the entire design flow, from front-end to back-end and final tape-out. The result is many iterations and delays in delivery schedules. Excellicon products focus on reducing multiple iterations between design and implementation teams resolving design timing closure issues, in which the timing constraints (SDC) development and validation are often the cause for prolonged delivery schedules. By using the Excellicon tools, LG Electronics can automate its timing constraints used for placement and routing of their chip solutions as well as eliminate unnecessary design cycles in order to achieve higher levels of accuracy and efficiency in delivery schedules.
“Excellicon provides a comprehensive foundation for us to address the efficiency of our constraints development process through all stages of design,” said Dr. Woohyun Paik, senior vice president, SIC Center, LG Electronics. “Excellicon’s tools enable us to address the gaps in constraints development and build a path to final timing closure without going through a costly iterative process.”
“A comprehensive solution for timing constraints synthesis and validation ensure completeness and correctness of timing constraints from the start of the chip design process eliminating need for multiple iterations,” said Rick Eram, VP of Sales and Marketing, Excellicon. “By deploying our products the iterations related to timing constraints are eliminated and product delivery schedules will be streamlined. This simply translates into faster turnaround time and reduced cost in the flow. We are very pleased to work with the team at LG.”
