Enhancements to GTX Sachin Bansal, Andrew B. Kahng, Igor Markov, Mike Oliver, Dirk Stroobandt Calibrating Achievable Design Theme
Rules are now by default localized to a namespace which groups them together according to the model used to compute their outputs. Parameters may also have a namespace: this is useful in identifying parameters which have no interesting “intrinsic” meaning, but are simply intermediate values in a calculation specific to a given model.
Example: There are two available rules to compute average interconnection length on chip, one (being used) from the DAVIS model, and the other from SUSPENS.
“Batch recorder” mode saves most operations that are performed to a file.
Example (default) view: sources are children of their sinks, and
both rules (blue) and parameters (black) are shown the same time.
The user can choose to make sinks children of their sources, or to show only rules or only parameters.
