Calibre Integration to Mentor Tools

Mentor Pyxis Custom Design to Calibre® Standard Interfaces

Mentor Graphics’ Pyxis Custom IC Design Platform provides complete access to the power of Calibre. Pyxis provides

Calibre RealTime in Mentor Pyxis

Calibre RealTime in Mentor Pyxis

Calibre RealTime for interactive sign-off during layout implementation, and the standard stream-based Calibre interfaces for final sign-off.

Calibre standard interfaces

Pyxis provides access to the full power of Calibre through the Calibre menu. This menu is installed and active by default, and the Interface is documented in the Calibre Interactive and Calibre RVE manual.

Calibre RealTime

Pyxis also provides full sign-off physical verification through Calibre RealTime during layout creation and editing. Users can enable the Calibre RealTime toolbar through the menu, as documented in the Calibre RealTime manual.

Calibre DESIGNrev to Calibre RealTime

The Calibre DESIGNrev layout viewer and editor provides interfaces to batch Calibre (through the standard interfaces) and Calibre RealTime (for interactive sign-off checking during layout editing). Both integrations are active by default, and documented in the Calibre reference manuals. Combining the speed and capacity of Calibre DESIGNrev with Calibre signoff engines makes Calibre DESIGNrev the tool of choice for final verification and chip assembly.

Mentor Olympus-SoC P&R Platform with Calibre InRoute

Mentor Graphics’ Olympus-SoC P&R platform enables signoff manufacturing closure during physical design with tight integration to Calibre InRoute. Calibre InRoute enables native invocation of all Calibre engines during place and route to minimize ECO iterations. Calibre InRoute is easy to adopt into existing flows, with no new languages, formats, or interfaces to learn.
