How Do I?

Posted by Shelly Stalnaker

Shelly Stalnaker It happens all the time, to all of us. You need a quick answer for a very specific question about using your EDA tools. You don’t want to wade through technical documentation, you don’t have time for an email response, and you really don’t want to try searching EDA forums for an answer. We feel your pain, and we decided to do something about it. Need to know how to extract a net from … Read More

So when your debugging and verifying your IC design with LVS, what information do you use? Are you a text report kind of engineer, pouring over the text files that Calibre LVS generates? Are you an RVE wiz, preferring to do things in a GUI? Or do you use a bit … Read More
