Mentor Graphics Design Rule Files
Building foundry-specific DRC and LVS rule files is a time-consuming task that can take thousands of man-hours to develop and validate. Foundry-supplied DRC and LVS decks eliminate this costly step.
The Mentor Graphics Calibre® physical verification tools are the tools of choice for process node development at the industry's top foundries. These foundries offer rule files to Mentor Graphics customers at no cost, which makes the initial overhead required to support DRC/LVS decks a thing of the past. Our customers have access to these technology files, and you can be assured of no costly rework cycles due to errors in the DRC/LVS deck.
Calibre DRC and LVS rule files ensure that you have a single rule file to support for both interactive and batch mode DRC and LVS runs, eliminating the need for two rule decks and effectively decreasing your cost of ownership.
