A custom layout environment improves productivity across IC design and verification flows
Chip design teams use many different EDA tools during the product development cycle to design, simulate, and verify today’s advanced ICs. In turn, EDA tools must support a variety of different IC design and verification flows with different needs and requirements. Manually customizing individual tools to meet those unique requirements and functionality requires constant maintenance and significant time and resources. The ability to quickly and easily create custom layout environments that are readily deployable and maintainable ensures that designers and teams have access to configurations that best align with their organizational requirements and also respect their personal preferences. Ultimately, this increased engineering productivity not only ensures compliance with specific organizational requirements but also results in faster turnaround times and time to market.
