Overview

Join Mentor Graphics for this On-Demand Seminar and Product Demonstration
(held live in San Jose, CA. Dec 2011) and learn how to improve design quality
and mitigate otherwise difficult to find errors within your design and
verification flows with Calibre® PERC™.

Protecting against ESD, Latch-up, reliability and other EOS events can be
challenging, particularly when multiple power domains and thinoxide gates are
used extensively. Detailed SPICE/Mixed-Mode simulation is an often used, but
costly (in terms of runtime, coverage and expertise) step in understanding the
protection your design will enjoy while identifying any potential reliability
issues.

During this seminar, we will review how Calibre PERC offers an effective and
easy to use solution that is able to look at the entire design in context and
answer these reliability questions for you, without the need for full
simulation.

What you will Learn

  • How to detect sources of reliability issues within your designs

  • Benefits of voltage dependant, and voltage aware checks – both on the
    topological representation of your design (netlist), and the physical
    layout

  • How to effectively verify signal paths in multi-power domain
    designs

Who Should View

  • IC and system design engineers, verification specialists and
    management
