IC Validator Technical Videos: Tech Talks
IC Validator Explorer is an innovative technology for design verification during SoC integration, enabling designers to run DRC faster and isolate gross design weaknesses within hours instead of days.
Physical verification runtimes are exploding at advanced technology nodes due to increasing design sizes and growing manufacturing complexity. Learn about how the IC Validator technology improves physical verification productivity.
For custom layout design flows, designers need immediate and on-the-fly DRC feedback as they do the layout edits. IC Validator Live DRC checking offers signoff quality DRC checking directly within the layout design environment.
How to minimize the impact of Metal Fill on Timing? Metal fill insertion affects timing because of added capacitance. Balancing density requirements and timing on critical nets is crucial for timely design closure.
In the later stages of design cycle, it is important to identify and fix DRC issues quickly to meet the tapeout schedule. This video discusses some techniques and best practices.
