How to Improve Physical Verification Productivity with SmartDRC/LVS

DRC Webinar imagePhysical Verification is the most critical stage of IC design. SmartDRC/LVS is a new physical verification tool for analog, digital and mixed-signal ICs including design rule checks (DRC), layout connectivity extraction and layout vs schematic (LVS) comparisons. Its unique multi-CPU architecture delivers high performance and capacity, accurate processing of complex shapes, and exceptional user productivity with fast interactive verification and intuitive debug. SmartDRC/LVS runsets are silicon-proven, and foundry certified.

SmartDRC/LVS is tightly integrated with Silvaco’s Expert layout editor and Gateway schematic editor. The integration enables users to visualize and pinpoint design issues and design rule violations and quickly act to resolve them. SmartLVS extracts the netlist from layout and provides the user the ability to cross-compare the schematic and layout.
