Colorless vs. Colored Double-Patterning Design Flows

The options and potential pitfalls of each approach.

Colored vs. Colorless double patterning design flows—do you know which one is best for your design? What options does your foundry allow? Do you debug one differently from the other? In this short video, I’ll demonstrate the differences between colored and colorless DP design flows, and explain the options and potential pitfalls of each approach. With a better understanding of how to design and debug each style, design teams will be prepared to work more efficiently using either of these DP design flows.
