xRC meets the demands of nanometer designs with a comprehensive approach to device and parasitic extraction to compose accurate silicon models enabling a large variety of post-layout analyses.
xRC and Calibre
xL performed well in our internal tests and offer advanced modeling capabilities to capture process variation effects that are necessary for 65nm," said Ed Wan, senior director of design services marketing, TSMC.
Mentor and Ciranova collaborated to validate that both of Ciranova's PCell products work transparently with Calibre
nmOPC answers these challenges by delivering several innovations including dense simulation, process window optimized OPC, a hybrid computing platform utilizing co-processor acceleration (with the Cell BE processor), a new compact resist process modeling capability, and design-intent aware correction algorithms.
Our ability to complete verification quickly and to work with our partners and customers is a large benefit of the Calibre
tool set over other similar tools on the market," said Greg Kleese, Director of Engineering at Agere.
The performance improvements we've seen using Calibre
nmDRC on Intel's Dual-Core Xeon 5160 processor are impressive," said Joe Sawicki, vice president and general manager of Mentor Graphics design-to-silicon division.
nmDRC allows us to offer several benefits to our customers in the nanometer realm," said Ken Liou, director of the IP and Design Support division at UMC.
Direct database access liberates designers to more easily use Calibre
nmDRC throughout the flow, regardless of their choice of design creation environment.
The integrated DFM solution provided by the Calibre
design-to-silicon platform includes functionality for litho-friendly design (Calibre
LFD(TM)), critical area and recommended rule analysis (Calibre
