Avoid Silicon Respins with Netlist CDC Verification (Part 2)

Date: November 29, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM PST

Part 1 of this webinar series covered the traditional approach where engineers use existing implementation and analysis tools with custom scripting and manual filtering to do basic checks for CDC verification at the netlist level and why this approach is not scalable. We discussed how this problem manifests into silicon and the recommended solution for netlist level Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) signoff.

In Part 2, we will cover the Netlist CDC flow compatible with Static Timing Analysis (STA) and also show a brief demo on the tool capabilities. We will cover a few sample violations and also highlight the debug and reporting capabilities of the tool.
