Course Highlights

This course will help you understand the wide breadth of problem areas addressed by Calibre PERC, including ESD, advanced ERC, multiple power domains, point-to-point resistance, and current density. The course will help you master the use of this powerful tool and will provide a basic understanding of designing and coding Calibre PERC rule decks. Calibre PERC programming concepts and techniques will be demonstrated through a collection of detailed lecture examples. Students will be able to explore many Calibre PERC concepts through the use of hands-on lab exercises.

You will learn how to:

  • Code Calibre control files used with Calibre PERC jobs.
  • Invoke Calibre PERC from the command line and from the interactive GUI.
  • Open Calibre PERC results in Calibre RVE.
  • Use Calibre RVE to highlight PERC results in netlist, schematic, and layout views.
  • Write basic PERC rule decks for performing a variety of supported circuit analysis tasks.
  • Debug Calibre PERC rule decks

Hands-on labs

Throughout this course, extensive hands-on lab exercises provide you with practical experience using Calibre PERC software. Hands-on lab topics include:

  • Setting up and running Calibre PERC jobs
  • Highlighting PERC results using Calibre RVE
  • Writing Calibre PERC initialization procedures
  • Using Calibre PERC high-level topology analysis procedures
  • Using Calibre PERC low-level data analysis procedures
