This white paper discusses how managing design integrity from cell and block design through tapeout in parallel with design implementation flows is crucial to synchronize design elements between teams and avoid costly delays. This paper will help you to:

  • Identify common pitfalls resulting from incomplete physical design validation during SoC implementation
  • Prevent out-of-sync abstracts in Place & Route flows by comparing LEF macro objects
  • Validate latest versions of IP that are referenced in block and chip level design databases
  • Minimize runtime required for validating FEOL/BEOL changes for staged tapeout flows
