Reliability

Reliability is a growing concern for integrated circuit designers; however, this is an area that could be better served by the electronic design automation industry. In response to this growing need, Mentor Graphics has developed Calibre PERC to address reliability challenges that arise during the circuit and electrical verification process. Calibre PERC is specifically designed to perform electrostatic discharge (ESD) and multiple power domain checks.ss (EOS), signals crossing multiple power domains, advanced ERC and other reliability concerns.

ERC checks

Calibre PERC allows you to customize ERC checks at the schematic level as well as geometrical and electrical checks at layout, which gives you more power and flexibility to handle emerging circuit verification demands for design implementation.

ESD, advanced ERC, and multiple power domains are top issues on a long list of complex new geometrical and electrical verification requirements. All of these advanced requirements can only be described by a topological view rather than single device/pin to net relation. A topological view incorporates many layout-related parameters as well as circuitry-dependent checks. Calibre PERC is the first industry tool to fulfill these complex verification requirements.
