Ensuring Optimal Performance For Physical Verification

How to achieve the fastest runtime possible for foundry rule implementations by using the latest improvements in operations, data hierarchy optimization and total scaling.


By accessing the most recently qualified version of foundry rule files, users get the most efficient rule implementations. By adopting the most recent version of Calibre, users get the latest improvements in available operations, operation performance, data hierarchy optimization and total scaling, providing the best possible performance and minimizing runtimes. Design teams running full-chip DRC on advanced nodes are encouraged to do both, as well as to run Calibre in the hyper remote configuration with dedicated hardware and virtual cores enabled. Using all of these approaches in conjunction enables the Calibre physical verification product to deliver the fastest total runtime possible.
