The SpyGlass® Constraints solution provides a big productivity boost to IC design efforts by automating the creation, validation and management of constraints. The SpyGlass Constraints solution generates new constraints where needed and verifies that existing constraints are correct and consistent across all phases of development: pre-synthesis, pre-layout and post-layout.
The SpyGlass Constraints solution can trim weeks or more from design schedules by pin-pointing the root cause of constraint problems quickly. And by ensuring valid constraints, the SpyGlass Constraints solution can avert design flaws and costly respins. The solution also helps assure a smoother hand-off between tools in multi-vendor flows. In addition, advanced options greatly streamline one of the most complex of constraints management tasks by automating timing exception generation and verification.
