InTime – Machine Learning Powered Timing Closure Solution

InTime UI_FPGA Close Timing_for Xilinx, Altera

InTime is a machine learning software that optimizes FPGA timing and performance using data analytics and computing power.

FPGA Softwares such as Vivado, Quartus and ISE provide massive optimization benefits with the right settings and techniques. InTime has built-in intelligence to identify these optimized strategies for synthesis and place-and-route. It actively learns from results to improve over time, extracting more than 20% increase in design performance from the FPGA softwares.

Better Results without RTL Changes

Yes we mean it. Get better results without modifying your design RTL or constraints. InTime has built-in intelligence to analyze your FPGA builds. It determines optimized strategies for synthesis and place-and-route, and explores placement techniques.

Easy to Use, Just Click Start. 

Let InTime decide. InTime learns from your previous build results and improves them based on device, design and tool characteristics. The more builds InTime does, the higher the likelihood of a better result becomes.

With machine learning, InTime gets smarter every time it runs. And you can build your own internal machine learning database easily and conveniently.

Not Brute Force

Seed sweep is a technique to get additional performance from placement changes. Similar to a seed sweep, InTime uses multiple results to derive the best settings for your design. The derived settings from InTime are resilient to design changes and can be combined with placement seeds to get better performance.

Scale Up or Down, Private or Public

InTime assimilates the computers you want into one big grid, distributing builds and collecting results across machines automatically. It works well with resource management software like LSF or SGE. You can run InTime on-premise in your company’s data center or in the cloud such as AWS. Read more about running InTime in the cloud.
