This whitepaper presents the key concepts of DPT compliant design and demonstrates how new signoff technology in IC Validator makes it possible to ensure 20nm manufacturing compliance. Recognizing that the designer productivity necessary cannot be achieved alone by point-tool enhancements and post-processing techniques, the paper outlines advances in In-Design physical verification within IC Compiler.

The consumer’s insatiable demand for greater performance, a shrinking form factor and extended battery
life, all while continuing the trend for lower end user cost is the driving force behind the semiconductor
industry’s rapid evolution to ever smaller process geometries.
