Out-of-the-Box HPC Physical Design Implementation

HPC designs also need effective datapath skewing, from place optimization all the way through route optimization, to meet their challenging frequency targets.

Overview

To meet high-performance computing (HPC) targets, specific challenges must be considered. Because the margins for achieving design closure on HPC designs at signoff are very small, every step of the physical implementation flow needs to address power, performance and area (PPA) metrics and avoid pessimism. HPC designs also need effective datapath skewing, from place optimization all the way through route optimization, to meet their challenging frequency targets.

Key Takeaways

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How the detail-route–centric architecture of Siemens’ Aprisa digital implementation design solution makes it possible to derive the push-and-pull offsets during place optimization and effectively realize them during route optimization
  • How Aprisa’s comprised patented technologies correlate with the static timing analysis (STA) and design rule checking (DRC) signoff tools, allowing designers to adopt the flow very quickly for their advanced node designs
  • A case study for HPC implemented through Aprisa at an advanced process node, as well as how the above technologies help achieve the desired frequency target
