A Predictable and Automated Path to Low-Power RTL

RTL power optimization efforts are too often traded to meet project deadlines. Manually combing through thousands of lines of code to find power saving opportunities is a hard and time consuming process. PowerPro eliminates all of that tedious work by automatically optimizing your RTL design to save up to 30% with no impact to timing or area. In this webinar, we will explain how PowerPro consistently produces better results than manual efforts and in significantly less time. You will also learn how PowerPro complies with stringent ASIC flow requirements with its built-in formal verification and ECO support. Used by leading semiconductor and fabless companies around the world, PowerPro is the ideal solution to effortlessly meet power goals on your next SoC project without sacrificing your schedule.
