The Calibre Auto-Waivers tool provides fast, accurate, automated recognition, removal, and tracking of waived design rule violations during DRC. It eliminates costly time and effort from the verification process and also ensures accurate processing of all waiver information on every DRC run.

The Calibre Auto-Waivers tool significantly reduces debug time, without the risk of accidentally waiving true design rule errors. The Calibre Auto-Waivers solution accurately accounts for waivers across cell hierarchies without placing a significant burden on the user.
Waived Once, Waived Forever
The Calibre Auto-Waivers tool permanently saves waivers and their associated text to a specific geometry layer, providing a standardized, consistent waiver record. This waiver record not only enables automated waiver removal during DRC, but also enables historical waiver analysis across designs and processes.
The Calibre Auto-Waivers tool implements waiver management automatically during a Calibre nmDRC run, without any need to modify foundry rule files.
The Calibre Auto-Waivers engine is hierarchically invariant, so even if violations for a specific cell are promoted up or pushed down in the hierarchy, the Calibre Auto-Waivers process can still waive the results correctly.
