Reducing Physical Verification Cycle Times with Debug Innovation
On-demand Web Seminar
This installment in the Physical Verification live web seminar series will address the complexity of debugging physical verification results and new, automated methods to simplify the process.
With the increased complexity in physical verification rules and the improvements in runtimes with Calibre, the debugging of physical verification results is becoming a bottleneck in the verification cycle. Calibre continues to work to address the entire verification cycle from run time through debug by enabling significant improvements in the flow.
To address the debug burden a series of new features have been developed. These additions add automation to the debug flow, allowing design teams to significantly reduce their physical verification cycle turn around times.
Duration: 1 hour
What You Will Learn
- How to utilize new Calibre physical verification features to add automation to the debug flow and reduce cycle times.
- Calibre DRC
- Calibre eqDRC
- Calibre LVS
- Calibre RVE
