Equation Based DRC
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
