Cut Your Simulation Runtime in Half (and More!) – Adopting and Using VCS 2017.03 with Cheetah Fine-Grained Parallelism Technology

Web event: Cut Your Simulation Runtime in Half (and More!) – Adopting and Using VCS 2017.03 with Cheetah Fine-Grained Parallelism Technology
Date: February 21, 2017
Time:10:00 AM PST
Duration: 60 minutes

Reducing simulation runtime by large factors is the holy grail for almost every verification engineer—being able to turn around regression results much more quickly, or being able to manage the IT spending needed to keep up with simulation demand are care-abouts at the top of every list.

VCS 2017.03 is the first production release of Synopsys’ breakthrough Cheetah Fine-Grained Parallelism (FGP) simulation performance technology. Cheetah FGP technology provides the ability for verification users to see significant performance gains using existing X86 servers, and with no need for design changes or modifications to VCS simulation environments.

We’ll talk about the following in this webinar –
  • Discuss the considerations and challenges for enabling parallelism in advanced simulation flows
  • Describe the Cheetah Fine-Grained Parallelism technology, and also how it takes advantage of rapid advancements in Many Core processor architectures
  • Why it is essential that FGP support is natively integrated into/and an inherent part of simulation engines and advanced verification flows
  • Best practices for gaining full advantage from VCS 2017.03 FGP, and example use cases

Cheetah FGP represents the next generation of simulation technology natively available for all VCS users in our upcoming 2017.03 release. Come see how Cheetah can help you with your verification challenges.
