This case study illustrates a solution for fast, iterative, signoff design rule checking (DRC) and fixing during floorplanning and placement. This method not only reduces the total batch DRC iterations, but also eliminates potential late-stage issues during final physical verification signoff that are exponentially harder to fix. Read about how MaxLinear’s designers were able to accelerate their DRC closure and save weeks in their tapeout schedules for all designs at all nodes.
