Highlights of InTime v1.2

Last month we released InTime v1.2, and we've been pushing out a number of incremental updates ever since. 

While the past few versions have been all about introducing new kick-ass features into InTime, this time we focused on working out the kinks. Here are the highlights of this version.

Understanding the InTime tool's approach

Solving timing problems via software tools has always been the exclusive domain of the FPGA vendors. As designers, we are conditioned to run timing analysis, examine timing reports and then close timing by changing RTL and constraints. Occasionally, (favorite tip received so far), I'm told to update the FPGA software to the newest version or patch.

When faced with a 3rd-party timing closure tool like our InTime software, many designers, beginners and veterans alike, have many questions and probably express a healthy dose of skepticism.

This post hopes to answer some of them. Please feel free to ping us if you have more.
