The characteristics of today’s complex IC designs are making accelerated processing of design data an essential part of design-to-silicon flows. To achieve profitability, design houses and fabs alike must be able to process huge and complicated volumes of design data swiftly. Turn around time (TAT) must be held to a minimum to ensure that designs are readied for manufacturing as quickly as possible in order to keep costs low and take advantage of volatile windows of opportunity in the marketplace. With Calibre MT or MTflex, turn around time is reduced and throughput is increased. For large IDMs or foundries that have to process several jobs, hardware configurations can be better utilized to optimize the total number of jobs that can run through in any given day.
