Cadence Innovus Implementation System speeds development of new Realtek DTV SoC solution

Cadence Design Systems, Inc. announced that Realtek Semiconductor Corp. used the Cadence® Innovus Implementation System for its 28nm Digital TV (DTV) System-on-Chip (SoC) production tapeout and achieved an area improvement and reduced power.

In addition to the quality of results (QoR) improvements, the Innovus Implementation System’s higher capacity enabled larger top-level blocks, reducing hierarchy and complexity of the SoC’s top level.

The Innovus Implementation System demonstrated its outstanding ability to enable Realtek to deliver larger and more complex DTV SoCs within tight market deadlines and meet aggressive power and area targets. Realtek had several years of experience using a previous-generation floor-planning solution from Cadence, so it was an easy migration that enabled the design team to be more productive when using the Innovus Implementation System for larger blocks.

“As our SoC designs increased in size, the top-level blocks became larger and larger, requiring a high-capacity implementation tool,” said Yee-Wei Huang, vice president and spokesperson for Realtek Semiconductor Corp. “The Cadence Innovus Implementation System enabled us to implement these bigger blocks while improving the QoR, which resulted in faster design closure and a more competitive product.”

The Innovus Implementation System is a massively parallel physical implementation system that enables engineers to deliver high-quality designs with competitive power, performance and area (PPA) targets while accelerating time to market. It is a part of the Cadence digital design platform that supports the company’s overall System Design Enablement strategy, which enables system and semiconductor companies to create complete, differentiated end products more efficiently.
