Course TitleEncounter Digital Implementation (Flat)_11.1
Course CategoryDigital IC Design – Encounter
Duration3 Days
Product VersionEDI 13.1

Course Description

In this course, you explore high-level design planning and implementation by using the Encounter® Digital Implementation software. You learn several techniques for floorplanning and placement while implementing timing closure strategies. You run the detail router to route a design, fix routing violations, and use timing and signal integrity options.


Other topics in this course include extracting parasitics, creating clock trees, running delay calculation, and using database access commands. You also explore wire editing, metal fill, ECO, and physical verification.


This course was formerly called Floorplanning, Physical Synthesis, Place and Route (Flat).
