EDA tools must now enable designers to handle significantly larger amounts of information in the same or shorter time frames as they have run in the past. This is even more difficult for the back-end tools due to the continually tightening geometry requirements in layout. Building on its reputation as the best in class physical verification tool, Mentor Graphics Calibre continues to deliver tools that meet the tough demands of today’s market. Building on the high capacity and fast performance of Calibre’s unparalleled hierarchical processor, users can gain an even greater performance boost by taking advantage of multiple CPUs, with CalibreMT. Similarly, by taking advantage of Calibre’s 64 bit operating configurations, user’s can assure that even the largest designs will complete. With these additional benefits strongly in place and available, Calibre is again demonstrating the forethought required to be a market leader.
