Shift left for fast, accurate, signoff-quality design-stage IC design verification and optimization
The earlier IC designers can identify and resolve design issues, the more they can reduce the amount and complexity of rework required to achieve design tapeout. Earlier problem resolution can also help compress production schedules while providing IC designers more time to improve IC design. However, the key to achieving the full value of a shift left strategy is to find and fix those design issues one time. That means fixing them with signoff-quality solutions. Building upon the strong Calibre nmPlatform foundation, the Calibre toolsuite enables design companies to shift left with multiple design-stage verification solutions in both the custom and digital implementation space.
