Atrenta has announced the donation of its SpyGlass design constraints (SGDC) for low power design to Accellera's unified power format (UPF) technical subcommittee.

Atrenta's constraint format enables IC designers to specify design intent for voltage domains and power isolation domains. The format also supports advanced low power techniques at various phases of the design, including RTL, post-synthesis and post-routing.

Atrenta's SpyGlass-Low Power solution has been widely adopted across state-of-the-art production design flows. Using SpyGlass Low Power, customers can verify that design implementation is aligned with low power design intent. Atrenta's power estimation technology enables customers to gauge power consumption at RTL to within 20 per cent of silicon-measured power. Additional capabilities help customers optimise the design for power efficiency, cutting IC power consumption by up to 40 per cent.

"Atrenta's customers will benefit immensely from a low power standard that simplifies low power design," said Dr. Ajoy Bose, chairman, president and CEO of Atrenta Inc. "At the end of the day, standards are all about customer productivity, which is why we are actively participating in all viable standards initiatives."
