Physical Verification

Using IC Validator

Industry Leading Productivity

IC Validator is a comprehensive and high-performance signoff physical verification solution that improves productivity for customers at all process nodes, from mature to advanced. IC Validator offers the industry’s best distributed processing scalability to over 4,000 CPU cores. The tool’s performance and scalability enabled some of the industry’s largest reticle limit chips with billions of transistors, same-day design rule checking (DRC), layout versus schematic (LVS), and dummy fill turnaround time.

IC Validator physical verification is seamlessly integrated with the Synopsys Fusion Compiler™ RTL-to-GDSII solution and IC Compiler® II place and route system in the Fusion Design Platform. This integrated fusion technology accelerates design closure for manufacturing by enabling independent signoff-quality analysis and automatic repair within the implementation environment.
