Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
IC Validator WorkBench (ICVWB) is a powerful, high-performance, hierarchical layout visualization and analysis tool. It allows quick viewing and editing GDSII, OASIS®, and LEF/DEF layouts from small IP blocks to full-chip databases. In addition, ICVWB enables you to easily visualize and access the layout data being examined by the IC Validator (ICV) physical verification tool suite and review physical verification results. Building from the earlier IC WorkBench Edit/View Plus (ICWBEV) product, ICVWB refines the application for physical verification designers.

ICVWB loads gigabytes of data in minutes and has unlimited file size capacity on 64-bit platforms. Fast zooming and panning ease exploration and analysis of the largest layout patterns. In addition, ICVWB can overlay two or more layouts in a single view without merging the underlying layout files.
Hierarchical selection and editing allow ICVWB to select and edit shapes deep in the hierarchy without requiring the sub-cell to be opened as shown in Figure 1. Edit operations have undo and redo support.
