Analog Design And Pattern Matching: A Perfect Pairing

How to automatically verify the physical placements of analog circuits.

popularity

While automated pattern matching is widely used in the digital IC physical verification process, adoption in the analog space has been much slower. In fact, the very nature of customized analog circuits lends itself ideally to some of the newer physical verification techniques offered by automated pattern matching technology, enabling designers to reduce verification time while still ensuring design quality. Errors not easily detected through conventional methods can be easily identified with minimal effort by incorporating a pattern-based verification flow. With its capability to automatically and precisely match desired geometries, and its ability to operate on multiple layers simultaneously, Calibre Pattern Matching provides a unique opportunity to automatically verify the physical placements of analog circuits.
