Key Features

Fast Accurate Extraction of Frequency-Dependent Effects

With increasing operating frequencies, interconnect lines exhibit inductive effects, with significant impact on chip behavior and performance. Parasitic on-chip inductance extraction is crucial for accurate simulation and timely tape-out of high-frequency RF, mixed signal and custom digital designs.

Fast and Accurate

Frequency-Dependent Loop Inductance and Loop Resistance

Full-chip, high-performance, parasitic self-inductance extraction. Accurate extraction of frequency-dependent loop inductance and resistance. Efficient, realizable model order (RLC) reduction. Return-path selection and net-based extraction frequency selection.
