CLK Design Automation's Amber Analyzer removes the barriers to achieving design closure in three ways: threaded processing, incremental analysis, and advanced functionality for its complete range of analysis options (timing, signal integrity, statistical timing, leakage and statistical leakage).
The strength of the Amber solution is that it scales with both computing platform and semiconductor requirements so engineers can handle big designs efficiently, implement changes incrementally, and debug problems interactively. For large analyses, the Amber Analyzer leverages the power of threaded computing (multi-core, multi-CPU) to deliver the raw performance required for today’s largest circuits. For small changes, it utilizes incremental technology to provide immediate feedback to the engineer without any compromise in accuracy. The base delay analysis is within 1% of other timing analysis tools, while the signal integrity analysis is within three percent of Spice.
