DOCEA Power delivers solutions to master the energy in electronics.
The company develops and commercializes a new generation of methodology and tools for enabling faster and more reliable power and thermal modeling at the system level.
Founded in 2006 by its current CEO and CTO, the privately held company is based in Moirans, in the Grenoble area, France. Its team draws on significant experience in both the microelectronics industry and EDA.
DOCEA Power is member of the global competitiveness cluster Minalogic and the SPIRIT Consortium.The company has partnerships with several public laboratories and world's largest semiconductor companies and is recognized for its expertise and professionalism.
The DOCEA Power solution is suitable for Chip or Platform manufacturer. It can be used by system and specification engineers as well as software and hardware developers for applications where power consumption or heat dissipation are key factors like in mobile and multimedia applications, automotive, network and medical systems.
Issues of packaging, cooling costs and power consumption are now keys to competitive success. DOCEA Power provides the first electronic system level (ESL) solution, based on the Aceplorer® (ACE for Abstract Concept of Energy) platform for modeling, simulating and optimizing power and thermal behavior of any electronic systems, either on-chip, on-board or with multiple boards.
Whatever the complexity, whatever the system, whatever the application, Aceplorer® gives system architects the power of fast, secure and efficient handling of power and/or thermal issue at a higher level. Aceplorer includes a proprietary fast electro-thermal dynamic simulator enabling power and temperature computing into a single tool.
The Aceplorer model is a common XML-based description for capturing power behavior from informal requirements, even if the sources are heterogeneous (spreadsheet, datasheet, specification, IP-XACT description and library). Aceplorer automatically generates power intents according to the UPF (Unified Power Format) description. So users can secure power specification and manage power intents at any stage of the design flow.
Thermal modeling in Aceplorer technology is based on a Dynamic Thermal Compact Model (DCTM) generated by proprietary mathematical algorithms. The user can build their own thermal model (in a Spice format) or run a dedicated tool which is currently provided as a DOCEA Power service.
Once all the models are generated, users can build an entire system model and execute the power and/or thermal exploration.
