The Mentor Graphics DFM Analysis Service
Power and Flexibility to Make You Successful at the World’s Leading Foundry
The DFM Analysis Service allows designers to identify and fix litho hotspots before they commit to tape-out. It is an attractive option for startups taping out relatively few advanced node devices per year, giving them a “capital lite” way to meet TSMC’s sign-off requirements without investing in a costly design data center.
The service, which is based on the Calibre® platform for TSMC 40nm and 28nm foundry customers, analyzes the customer’s design database in accordance with TSMC’s lithography reference flow and delivers a results database with hotspot locations and fixing hints that Mentor and 3rd party routers can use to make corrections.
Mentor performs all the required tool setup and runs the lithography checks against the customer’s GDSII design database on its own data center in Wilsonville, Oregon. Customers are protected by an advanced security infrastructure and protocol that isolates and secures their intellectual property.
