The need for safety and reliability has become paramount with the emergence of mission-critical IC applications across automotive, space, and medical industries. These applications require low defect rates (measured in defective parts per billion or DPPB), compliance with ISO26262 safety standards, and long-term reliability. IC hyperconvergence adds another layer of complexity by driving complex multi-function/multi-technology design integrations on the same SoC or package.
The need to verify safety and reliability on hyperconverged designs requires a holistic and cohesive approach to reliability verification. Disparate tools and solutions are grossly inadequate to meet the designer’s needs.
PrimeSim™ Reliability Analysis is a comprehensive solution that unifies production proven and foundry-certified reliability analysis technologies covering electromigration/IR drop analysis, design robustness, MOS aging, analog fault simulation, and circuit checks (ERC) to enable full-lifecycle reliability verification.
PrimeSim Reliability Analysis is integrated with the PrimeSim simulation solution allowing users to seamlessly deploy foundry certified reliability analysis technologies and industry-leading simulation engines, and verify reliability across early life, normal life, and end-of-life stages. The PrimeWave Design Environment, a newly architected environment delivers a rich and consistent reliability verification experience across all PrimeSim engines and PrimeSim Reliability Analysis technologies with unified setup and results post-processing.
