Overview

The Olympus-SoCâ„¢ Netlist-to-GDSII system comprehensively addresses the performance, capacity, time-to-market, power, and variability challenges encountered at the leading-edge process nodes. It is a complete physical design implementation tool for the complex multi-patterning and FinFET requirements of advanced process technologies.

Olympus-SoC provides the highest capacity in the industry, with a very compact and scalable database capable of handling designs with hundreds of millions of instances. Its low-power suite enables both leakage and dynamic power reduction throughout the flow, and power-aware clock tree synthesis.
