Qualcomm continually strives to optimize their integrated circuit (IC) design flows to achieve maximum efficiency. Using the interactive and immediate signoff design rule checking (DRC) feedback provided by the Calibre RealTime Digital interface, Qualcomm can achieve critical milestones such as base layers and metal layers tapeouts inside the place and route (P&R) environment, providing more time to create innovative, high-quality designs that reach the market on or ahead of schedule.


Qualcomm Incorporated (Qualcomm) designs and markets wireless telecommunications products and services that are the foundational technologies that others build upon, from mobile processors to embedded platforms, Bluetooth products, and cellular modems. They are the world leader in 3G and 4G wireless technology, and are pioneering the way to 5G with a new era of intelligent products that are revolutionizing industries, including automotive, computing, IoT, health care, and data centers—allowing millions of devices to connect with each other like never before.

Faced with relentless advances in technology, the need for constant product innovation, and rapidly shifting markets, Qualcomm continually strives to optimize their integrated circuit (IC) design flows to achieve maximum efficiency using the most effective level of resources.
