- Comprehensive validation system
- Library function equivalence and data consistency checking
- Revision analysis
- Timing and power correlation
The Cadence® Liberate™ Trio Characterization Suite provides a collection of utilities for validating libraries including functional equivalence checking, data consistency checking, revision analysis, and correlation with various electrical analysis tools for timing, noise, and power.
Using the validation tool in the Liberate Trio suite enables a complete validation of a library that can be completed overnight on a small number of multi-core computers. For library providers, this ensures library quality before the library is shipped. For library users, it allows cross-checking of the incoming library and provides a clear understanding of the impact of any changes due to revisions of extracted cell netlists or process models. It also provides the means to validate and verify the final library, ensuring consistency, completeness, and accuracy.
This feature is also offered as a standalone option.
