Standard Cell Libraries
Silvaco’s Standard Cell libraries deliver thousands of highly optimized cells with each one being optimized for power, area, speed, routing, and yield. These libraries may be extended with Power Management Kits, taking power reduction to the next level, and ECO Kits to enable late-stage design modifications.
Standard Cell Libraries Features and Applications
|Power Management Kits (PMKs)||Enables enhanced performance and power control|
|Engineering Change Order (ECO) Kits||Reduce re-spin and mask costs|
|Multi-Vt cells||Optimize power across your design|
|Multiple track heights||Optimize speed and area of your design|
|Complex function cells including building blocks for ALUs and multipliers||Higher performance, improved power consumption and reduced area|
|Multi-bit flops||Efficient area utilization and power savings|
|Fine grain drive strengths||Optimum drive choice for best power, performance, area|
|Custom Corners||Custom characterization corners such as low voltage operation|
In addition to a rich set of base standard cells each Silvaco standard cell library offers thousands of cell variants, enabling applications such as low power, minimal area, or high speed. Each cell family in a library is carefully sized, optimizing transistor sizes, P/N ratios, and drive strength granularity for improved power consumption and performance gains.
Multi-bit and multi-height standard cells boost routing density even further by reducing pin count and packing more functionality inside standard cells.
Specialty libraries are also supported including:
- Rad hard （subject to export control）
- High voltage （thick oxide）
