Fast, efficient, productive early-stage IC design physical verification
Ensuring that early-stage IC design physical verification actually enhances IC design and verification productivity means giving engineers the ability to focus on those errors that are both valid and critical in early-stage designs. The Calibre nmDRC Recon functionality provides selective DRC of early-stage designs that focuses on real, relevant errors, ignoring rule checks that generate meaningless errors in early design stages. Expanding that functionality to include techniques such as gray boxing further helps designers concentrate on checking only those portions of the design ready for verification. Calibre Auto-Waivers functionality provides automated post-processing and waiving of output results to facilitate even faster debugging and optimized fixing.
