Baum is uniquely positioned in the market because our power modeling solutions maintain the highest level of accuracy customers demand while providing them with two orders of magnitude (100X) faster power analysis performance. This unique combination of accuracy and speed allows designers to run a variety of realistic simulation scenarios with a much larger piece of the system, which has not been possible with other solutions in the market.
Baum removes the compromising on the length of the simulation or the size of the design to be analyzed. Typically, with other solutions in the market, the designer is required to limit the amount of simulation time to a small window because the analysis speeds are very slow. Existing solutions also require the designer to prune down the analysis to a small block because they have limited capacity. With Baum, there is no need to make these compromises. The unique capabilities of Baum’s power models expand the realm of possibilities for a designer to analyze bigger and bigger designs and allowing them to run realistic scenarios and workloads on those designs.
In addition, Baum’s power models can be used much earlier in the design cycle (shifting left). Using Baum’s power models in ESL environments provides users the means to truly understand power and thermal constraints at the system level and understand power management in both the hardware and software domains. This allows architects and designers to make true power and performance trade-offs in a single simulation with congruent power and performance models.
Once Baum’s power models are created, they can be easily ported into any simulation environment including ESL simulation (Virtual Platforms), RTL simulation, and emulation. This portability enables reuse and consistency across platforms and allows 3rd party IP providers to offer power models of their IP to their end users.
