Empyrean Aether delivers a complete, integrated solution for custom IC designs using OpenAccess™ as the native database. This platform has several built-in modules such as design manager (Aether-DM), technology manager (Aether-TM), schematic editor (Aether-SE), layout editor (Aether-LE), schematic-driven layout (Aether-SDL), mixed-signal simulation environment (Aether-MDE), etc.
Empyrean-XTop is a genuine placement- and routing-aware, multi-corner, multi-mode timing ECO solution with minimal impact to power and area in nanometer-scale IC designs.
Timing closure is a major problem with today’s SOC designs impacting time to market, revenue, and cost of design. It gets worse with each new process node. Empyrean-XTop helps design teams to achieve faster timing /ECO closure and complements existing place and route and sign-off static timing analysis STA (Static Timing Analysis) tools in a user’s flow.
Empyrean-XTop has been used in production for over a decade. It provides much faster timing closure convergence than conventional timing ECO flows.
