Comprehensive Cell, I/O and Memory Characterization
The SiliconSmart® solution is part of the Synopsys Custom Design Platform and generates Liberty libraries for use in digital design and implementation flows. The SiliconSmart solution includes a comprehensive array of library characterization and QA capabilities that are tuned to produce PrimeTime signoff-quality libraries with maximum throughput on available compute resources. SiliconSmart innovative technologies utilize embedded gold-reference SPICE engines to provide a characterization speed-up of advanced Liberty models used by PrimeTime static timing analysis (STA) to accurately account for effects seen in ultra-low-voltage FinFET processes that impact timing. This includes PrimeTime parametric on-chip variation (POCV), advanced waveform propagation (AWP), and electromigration (EM) analysis.
