Course Highlights

The course includes a basic introduction to router technology for those students who are unfamiliar with this topic. The course then goes on to describe most of the Pyxis Custom Router features and procedures in sufficient detail to equip students with the knowledge needed to apply the tool productively to their designs. The use of the router with the powerful Pyxis Layout tool is fully covered in the course.

You will learn how to

  • Access the Pyxis Custom Router from within Pyxis Layout
  • Define routing constraints
  • Create new wire models
  • Run the global router
  • Run the detail router
  • Analyze routing reports
  • Use the DFM feature to insert extra vias
  • Use the extraction feature to generate parasitic data
  • Customize router behavior through properties
  • Understand and modify router scripts

Hands-on labs

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

  • Understanding the Pyxis GUI
  • Setting up the environment
  • Using default router constraints
  • Creating and using a new wire model
  • Creating power distribution networks
  • Running the global router
  • Running the detail router with default and modified constraints
  • Adding wire shielding
  • Pre-wiring devices
  • Running DFM to insert redundant vias
  • Extracting parasitic data
  • Modifying the router initialization script
