Place-and-Route

How do you get excellent quality-of-results at a competitive runtime? The challenges of design implementation at advanced process nodes require a new place-and-route paradigm.

Trends & Technologies

Challenges in Digital Place-and-Route

Managing design complexity, performance/power/area targets, and time-to-market are crucial challenges in modern SoC design. Design rule complexity and meeting timing make design closure more challenging than ever, and calls for a paradigm shift in place-and-route.

Achieving DRC Closure

Extensive use of multiple-patterning technology, EUV lithography and mixed-height cells complicates placement and routing. Fundamental changes to place-and-route technology are required to effectively achieve DRC closure.

Delivering Competitive PPA

The market wants ICs with the lowest power use and highest performance. Break-through optimization technologies can minimize power while achieving timing and area targets and controlling development cost.

Reducing Time to Closure

Accurate post-route timing estimation is harder than ever with the increase in wire/via resistance. Avoid iterations, improve PPA, and reduce time to closure by pulling detailed route visibility earlier in the flow.
