Equation Based DRC
On-demand Web Seminar
Watch this online seminar and learn how Calibre eqDRC provides improved solutions across the design chain.
For nanometer processes, the complexity of failure mechanisms is very difficult to capture with traditional design rule checking approaches. Multi-layer dependencies with complex interactions are difficult to adequately and accurately describe with pass/fail syntaxes alone. Understanding the intent of the complex rules and knowing how to debug them in a timely manner is nearly impossible. Equation based DRC processing represents a solution to these issues by applying a simple architecture that enables increased insight into the coding and identification of complex rule failures.
What You Will Learn
- How to address PV rule count & complexity
- How to increase accuracy and improve yield and reliability by using eqDRC
- How to gain more insight into the nature of the rule and potential fixes

How to Filter Calibre results on property values
Calibre results databases often have many results, making it hard to find the result you want to work on. In this video we will see how to filter on one or more property values so that we only see the results...
Checking for electrical overstress using Calibre PERC
This video shows how users can check for Electrical overstress using Calibre PERC and use Calibre RVE to debug the results and eliminate the source of EOS failures.
Running multi-power domain checking using Calibre PERC
In the mix signal design, it is required to have different voltages to support each domain on the chip. However, designers have to make sure there is no signal line directly across from one voltage to another...
