Variation and its effects on a design become a bigger problem at advanced nodes. Cadence’s Virtuoso® custom design platform offers capabilities to help you analyze, understand, and mitigate the effects of variation on your design. Our tools can perform partial layout resimulation so you can:
- Verify that your assumptions about critical paths in your design are valid
- Finish layout on a critical block earlier
- Analyze partial placement and partial routing
Using our custom design tools, you can perform fast, accurate entry of design concepts. With the ability to abstract and visualize the various interdependencies of an analog, RF, or mixed-signal design, you’ll be able to better understand and determine their impact on circuit performance.
