LG Electronics has selected ACAD Corp.'s FinePower Dynamic Power & IR Drop analysis tool for the design and verification of complex ICs used in its latest digital TV (DTV) receiver designs.

Under the terms of the agreement, LG's DTV chip designers have used ACAD's FinePower to perform Dynamic Power & IR Drop analysis needed to assist in the first-pass silicon success of DTV ICs. FinePower was used in conjunction with the Synopsys extractor, power library, and primetime, millennium delay calculator.

"Fast, accurate, and full-chip gate/transistor-level Dynamic Power & IR Drop analysis is essential for verifying and analyzing function of our complex and high performance digital TV design, but older Power & IR Drop tools are limited by either capacity, accuracy, or the performance we need, because of their static analysis method," said Woo-Hyun Paik, Ph.D, leader of SIC DCM Group, chief research engineer of LG System IC Division.
