Architected to extract maximum process entitlement for 5-nm-and-beyond processes’, Synopsys’ latest Fusion Technology is helping customers realize optimal full-flow, power, performance and area while accelerating their ever-important time-to-market.
Metal fill insertion affects timing because of added capacitance. Balancing density requirements and timing on critical nets is crucial for timely design closure. IC Compiler II In-Design with signoff quality IC Validator metal fill minimizes the timing impact of metal fill and reduces overall design turnaround time.
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. Taking advantage of the integration of the IC Compiler II with signoff quality IC Validator DRC checking, designers can automatically fix DRC violations and improve turnaround time by automatically detecting changed ECO areas for incremental DRC checking.
