Verification software accelerated Arm IP validation by 1,000x
The acceleration enabled Arm to verify its standard cell IP to Six Sigma, while significantly improving validation runtime.
“Improving compute cost and time-to-market is a constant priority for Arm, and we continue to meet and exceed high-quality and reliable operation requirements, enabling higher chip yield, performance, power, and area (PPA) metrics for our partners,” said Philippe Moyer, vice president of design enablement, Arm. “Solido Variation Designer helps Arm to deliver these benefits to customers by providing greater verification accuracy and coverage in a fraction of the runtime, and using AWS Graviton2-based instances powered by Arm Neoverse cores, we can further extend that advantage in cost-to-compute and turnaround time.”
By migrating its Solido Variation Designer usage to Arm®-based processors on Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), Arm was able to further reduce compute costs by 24% and total CPU time by 12%, as well as improve turnaround time by 6%.
