Shelly Stalnaker Just like blueprints give an architect a visual representation of a building, design patterns provide engineers with a visual depiction of complex layout geometries. Design patterns have become a useful tool throughout design, verification, and test processes. This Design-to-Silicon white paper explains how Calibre Pattern Matching software can help you implement automated pattern capture and pattern … Read More

Mastering the Magic of Multi-Patterning

Posted by Shelly Stalnaker

Shelly Stalnaker While processes like double and triple patterning may sometimes seem like magic, successfully implementing multi-patterning compliance in the IC design and verification flow requires a thorough understanding of multi-patterning techniques and their impact on your design. In this white paper from David Abercrombie, learn what multi-patterning is, why you need it, and how Calibre Multi-Patterning software … Read More

Enabling Superior Support

Posted by John Ferguson

John Ferguson In my last few posts, I began discussing on what it takes to enable software quality and support.  This particular post will focus on the latter, support. Of course the goal of any descent software provider is to deliver software that is bug free, intuitive to use, and performs a valuable service.  While we strive for perfection, in reality these goals can never be fully achieved.  In the EDA world, … Read More
