Design Rule Checking is an essential part of your back-end design process. You know how important it is to validate the manufacturability of your designs before going into production in order to maximize yield. This is why you do not want to compromise on quality and want a DRC that can check all the complex rules associated to modern foundry processes.
dw-2000 XDRC provides designers of analog and mixed-signal ICs with a physical verification tool that is ideal for verifying design rules imposed by the most advanced technologies. Its features, performance and accuracy are unparalleled on low cost platforms. Its ability to handle all angle geometries makes it even more flexible and capable of locating errors other software won?t.
XDRC can cover the rule sets of all the major foundries. The scripting language is easy to learn and extremely powerful. XDRC's comprehensive commands provide designers with a reliable solution for validating ICs for tape out and delivery to the foundry for manufacturing.
Commands include: width, spacing, overlap, extensions, inside, outside, touch, enclose, area, density, edge and segment selection, conditional checks (such as angle, edge length), property checks (such as area, ratio), conjunctive rules, error filtering (such as projections) and connectivity (such as antenna rules.)
It can be integrated with dw-2000 Layout Editor for easy error navigation, including: legend dialog to facilitate error count, mask and navigation, color-coded error representation, and plain English error representation. This allows designers to have a close interaction between the errors and the layout where they can correct them. XDRC is a cost effective solution for that interactive stage of physical verification of analog and mixed-signal IC.
For those who require basic rule checking without the need for a comprehensive solution such as XDRC, we offer our Standard DRC tool. dw-2000 Standard DRC is a practical solution for verifying standard rules. To learn more about its features, click here >>>
