Advanced Fill Techniques and the Impact of ECO's on the Design Flow
Join us at this DAC lunch seminar as we explore advanced fill techniques. If you have been involved with fill at the latest technology you are well aware that the impact of fill has increased significantly. Not only have the expected run times and file sizes increased but the complexities of the rules, layers and proximity have as well. At this luncheon, you will learn how the SmartFill function of Calibre® YieldEnhancer deals with these challenges and how it is setting the standard for fill.
We will also demo how SmartFill can be used to successfully handle those last minute Engineering Change Orders. You will be introduced to the benefits of an ECO fill flow that includes:
- Reducing run time
- Controlling file size
- Limiting timing impact
- Reducing mask cost by limiting the mask changes
What You Will Learn
New process challenges addressed by fill and specific SmartFill solutions
Impacts of the new fill requirements on the design flow
Calibre's solution for addressing the ECO fill flow
