Key Features

Performance and Accuracy for Leading-Edge Designs

Versatile parasitic extraction platform provides accurate, deterministic, repeatable results with 10x the performance of previous solutions to handle a wide range of designs and advanced processes

Field Solver Accuracy

Highest Extraction Accuracy

Supports the most advanced foundry device models, including FinFET, and leading edge process nodes with accurate, deterministic results. Results from simultaneous multi-corner extraction precisely match single-corner results.
