Please view our 45-minute webinar to learn from our technologists about the recently (May 2009) launched IC Validator, an ideal add-on to IC Compiler for In-Design physical verification. In-Design physical verification helps place and route engineers significantly reduce time to tapeout and improves DFM, by enabling physical verification within the implementation flow.
Modifying your layout after implementation can affect other design targets such as timing, power and signal integrity. In-Design physical verification provides a push-button flow for signoff quality metal fill and Design Rule Checking (DRC) inside IC Compiler where timing can still be considered. Our physical design and verification technologists will show you how new IC Validator In-Design physical verification combines timing awareness and signoff accuracy to speed up your tapeout schedule.
