Synopsys Galaxy Implementation Platform enables first-pass silicon success on Infineon's 40-nanometer X-GOLD 626 wireless product
IC Compiler capabilities for low power, hierarchical design and multi-corner/multi-mode optimisation enable tapeout ahead of schedule(PresseBox) ( Mountain View CA, )
"One of the key challenges we had in designing the X-GOLD 626 baseband processor was optimising the design for highest performance and lowest power, without compromising on robustness and quality," said Hartmut Hiller, vice president of Design Methodology and Implementation at Infineon Technologies. "Synopsys' Galaxy platform includes essential advanced low power capabilities which, along with its strength in hierarchical design and concurrent MCMM optimisation, were critical to our firstpass silicon success. Synopsys' excellent global support and the Galaxy platform's robust implementation and signoff technologies, we successfully taped out the chip ahead of schedule."
Infineon's X-GOLD 626 is a complex multimilliongate analog and digital SIP that integrates a power management unit to enable bestinclass power consumption in both active and idle modes. Infineon's design team captured the chip's complex power architecture with the IEEE 1801 (UPF) standard. Power management features implemented using the Galaxy platform included voltage islands with MTCMOS power gating and multithreshold libraries. In addition, by implementing a hierarchical design flow and support for multiple internal clocks, the Galaxy platform delivered outstanding quality of results, meeting Infineon's highperformance, low power and area goals.
"Our customers are facing several challenges: to produce the highestquality products within the shortest amount of time and with bestinclass performance, power and area," said Dr. Antun Domic, senior vice president and general manager, Implementation Group at Synopsys. "Infineon's decision to deploy our Galaxy Implementation Platform, including IC Compiler, for their advanced wireless designs will enable them to continue to aggressively focus on bringing differentiated wireless SoC solutions to market."
