Fast Capacitance Extraction Within the Expert Layout Editor Using Hipex and the Stellar Solver for a Touch Panel Application
The Stellar GUI-based field solver tool for parasitic extraction is now integrated into Hipex, Silvaco’s full chip extraction tool. In Hipex, users have a choice of which RC extraction field solver mode to use including Stellar. The Expert editor GUI has been extended to provide technology setup for the Stellar mode of Hipex. Stellar can handle very large layouts with a smaller memory footprint and reduced runtime with acceptable accuracy in comparison to the Clever reference field solver. Clever employs an ultra-accurate adaptive meshing field solver, and can be used as an accuracy check when Stellar or rule-based parasitic extraction is performed in Hipex. In this webinar, we will review the basic interface of Hipex in the Expert GUI using Stellar as a field solver to extract capacitance for a touch panel application example.
What attendees will learn:
- How to use Hipex/Stellar GUI interface
- Capacitance extraction using the Stellar field solver in a touch panel application example
