Length : 1 day
The course is designed to offer user-level experience on the next generation parasitic extraction solution from Cadence® – Quantus QRC. You explore the documentation system and Cadence® online support. You start with an overview of the PVS–Quantus QRC data flow and advance to hands-on extraction activities. You then set up the extraction environment in GUI mode or command line. You explore the considerations, settings and various features for Quantus parasitic extraction such as random walk field solver, adaptive meshing, split wide MOS or hierarchical extraction and then run multi-corner extraction with Quantus and perform Reduction Control & Advanced Virtual Metal Fill (VMF). Under specific extraction capabilities, you check out parasitic inductance extraction with PEEC – Wide Band Models and parasitic substrate extraction with Substrate Noise Analysis (SNA).
In this course, you use the Virtuoso® Layout Suite. The Quantus QRC Extraction system is integrated into the Virtuoso menu bar for easy access.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
