IC Validator Programmable EERC Mixed Mode Checking Technology

Improving reliability with extended electrical rule checking.

popularity

Traditional visual inspection or manual checking for electrical rule compliance is both time consuming and error prone. A new, comprehensive reliability solution is needed to reduce time to market, improve reliability and ensure longer device operation. This paper is a companion to the introductory IC Validator programmable Extended Electrical Rule Check (EERC) white paper on netlist domain checking. IC Validator programmable EERC categorizes electrical rule checking (ERC) into three broad categories: netlist domain, mixed mode and current density/point-to-point resistance. This paper focuses on the mixed mode class of checks.
