Calibre PERC advanced voltage-aware DRC delivers exacting accuracy for today’s complex designs

Companies designing high-voltage and multiple power domain applications at any node require exacting accuracy to achieve the high reliability and high yield needed for market success. The Calibre PERC enhanced VA-DRC flow automatically propagates and notates accurate voltage values based on static propagation rules, exceeding the accuracy of both geometric-only checks and manually-annotated DRC. Actionable, context-aware error results support more accurate and efficient debugging and reinforce reliability optimization strategies. Designers using the Calibre PERC enhanced VA-DRC flow can deliver productivity, precision, and reliability—critical elements of success in markets driven by tight schedules and constant innovation.
