Calibre - The Touchstone for IC Design



With the rapid adoption of 28nm technology node, design methodologies are changing in the physical verification world. At this lunch seminar you will learn about the new design checking capabilities available with the Calibre platform. For extra credit we will also include a section highlighting what is coming at the 20nm technology node.

Seating is limited so reserve your spot today to learn how Calibre's accuracy, integration and functionality make it the touchstone of the IC ecosystem.

Lunch will be served.

What You Will Learn

  • The major trends in advanced Design Rules and data that is driving an explosion in processing requirements at advanced nodes.
  • What Mentor is doing with the foundries to minimize PV run times and minimize how many CPUs are needed to verify designs with all the advanced physical checking rules at 65nm, 45/40nm, 32/28nm and 20nm.
  • The benefits of Double Patterning - it's not 2 for the price of 1.
  • Why you should be using Pattern Matching now that it has gone main stream.
  • 2.5D/3D-IC chip stacking, and what you need to understand to verify mixed technology chips.
