At nanometer nodes, design sign-off requires more than DRC & LVS. Calibre DFM yield analysis, printability, and performance validation tools provide layout modifications and design flow-based yield-enhancing operations, and ensure IC design optimization, performance, and reliability.
<p>The Calibre Design for Manufacturing (DFM) toolsuite provides an expansive set of yield analysis solutions that account for random, systematic, and parametric yield loss. These analysis solutions are the basis for automated layout enhancements that improve printability and performance. The Calibre tools enable a wide variety of smart design optimizations for both yield and reliability without sacrificing area.</p>
Calibre DFM tools deliver foundry know-how upstream to design engineers, empowering them to design for optimal performance, manufacturability, and yield.
