PowerTheater is a comprehensive set of power tools that create maximum power efficiency for SOC designs at the architectural level, RT level, and gate level. This family of full-chip power tools can be used throughout the IC design process. PowerTheater products (PowerTheater Analyst and PowerTheater Designer) analyze, display, and help the user to reduce the power for the whole chip and each individual module. These tools interface directly with Verilog and VHDL simulators to capture behavioral and gate-level simulation activity.
