Layout Modification Based on Comprehensive Analysis.
The Calibre YieldEnhancer tool offers an automated approach to layout enhancements that help improve yield without sacrificing area. Calibre YieldEnhancer SmartFill technology addresses new fill challenges at advanced process nodes, including multi-patterning and an ECO fill flow.
Design teams are under continuous pressure to reduce time to market, but verification cycles are only getting longer and more difficult for designs at all nodes. The Calibre nmDRC Recon tool provides focused DRC to dramatically speed up early design analysis and reduce overall design closure time.
SmartFill, the Industry’s Leading Fill Solution
Calibre YieldEnhancer SmartFill functionality combines advanced design density analysis with multiple filling solutions for the optimum filling strategy for correct-by-construction results in both digital and custom/analog designs. SmartFill allows designers to satisfy complex IC fill constraints in a single pass, with minimal impact on circuit performance.
Optimized Layout Modification That Fits in Design Flows
Block and top-level routing are often designed in parallel. Verifying routing while blocks are incomplete leads to long runtimes and confusing results. The Calibre nmDRC Recon gray box feature enables removal of block-specific data as needed to reduce check time and error results from the block, while still enabling checking in context.
Programmable Edge Modification
Calibre YieldEnhancer programmable edge modification is a collection of automated edge and polygon manipulating functions. DFM Property determines how much to move the shape and then assigns the value onto the polygon. The Calibre YieldEnhancer tool then reads the property and moves the layout.
