    • 通过导入现有库,可以快速轻松地配置kronos characterizer plus。Comprehensive support of Liberty modeling methods handles all technology setups.
    • Kronos is natively integrated with the Eldo and AFS simulators to achieve high-performance and efficiency.

Kronos Analyzer

Kronos Analyzer is a library validation and optimization flow with library comparison technology and a rule-based checker that generates easy to read and interpret reports and graphs.


  • Versatile comparison and validation capabilities
  • 比较两个库以验证正确性或评估性能
  • 精确定位新库发布更新中的更改,以完成库验证和分析
  • 查询,report,以及任意数量的库之间的图表结果
  • Qualify and validate libraries and processes with custom and built-in analysis flows
  • Rule-based checker with easy to read and interpret reports
  • Automatically find cell maps between libraries based on cell behavior
  • Complete support for: Liberty format,标准单元,I/O,以及复杂的电池时间和功率模型
  • Kronos Analyzer provides versatile comparison and validation capabilities that can be used for correlation,comparison,and production validation.
  • Kronos Analyzer has extensive comparison capabilities that quickly help isolate effects of changes to spice models,方法论,or underlying tools involved in characterization.
  • Kronos Analyzer can operate on any number of libraries for queries,绘图和报告。Visual comparison across drive strength,process,voltage,等。是直截了当的。
  • Kronos Analyzer provides validation capabilities with error-threshold based numerical comparison as well as structural comparison of equivalent libraries.
  • Kronos Analyzer为Liberty模型提供基于规则的验证,并具有合理的放弃能力,因此可以获得通过/失败的结果;thus avoiding time-consuming review of reports.
  • KronosAnalyzer独特的功能匹配技术使图书馆鉴定团队能够比较不同来源的图书馆。
