ClosureACE simplifies global verification and eliminates the need for slow, iterative attempts at achieving timing closure. ClosureACE works in conjunction with Blendics DANI wrappers, which provide a delay-tolerant interface between clocked objects and the asynchronous network-on-chip (ANoC).
The ClosureACE global interconnect tool is used to connect DANI-wrapped cores within a system-on-chip (SoC), eliminating the need for timing closure and producing circuits that are free of the output instabilities that often plague asynchronous designs.
ClosureACE features include:
- Point-to-point and multi-point support
- Recursive composition of network components
- Integrates with traditional EDA design tools
- Constraint-based design, allowing flexible place and route
