Leveraging Calibre PERC for Robust IP Verification



TSMC and Mentor Graphics have jointly developed electrical checks to help improve IP dependability as part of the TSMC 9000 qualification process. The TSMC 9000 certification process for IP now requires reliability verification, leveraging Mentor Graphics' Calibre PERC® to check for electrical issues and improve IP dependability.

This session provides an overview of the benefits of this new validation requirement for TSMC9000 IP and how it impacts the IP you use in your designs.

Lunch will be served.

What You Will Learn

  • Recent changes to the TSMC 9000 program for IP validation
  • How Calibre PERC is used within the TSMC 9000 program to drive robust IP verification
  • How potential IP comparative issues are identified from a SOC/Systems prospective
