Offering a fast, high-capacity alternative for register-transfer level (RTL) synthesis of very large ICs, the RTL Compiler is optimized for design larger than 1 million gates with aggressive clock speeds. Built to be compatible with customer-owned tooling (COT) design flows, RTL Compiler sports fast runtimes and brings to the party such features as test insertion and power optimization. New analytic technologies include a global-based optimization engine enabling linear behavior over design and library size; constraint-directed logic, power, and datapath optimization; and highly efficient data representation. The tool's total negative slack optimization increases timing margins to optimize more than a design's critical paths, providing extra timing margin for near-critical nets. The tool is shipping now with a base price of $100,000.
