PowerDRC/LVS is designed to process integrated circuit (IC) designs of various size at technology nodes up to 28nm, with run times which are fast and completely predictable. It is massively scalable and provides turnaround is time that is up to an order of magnitude faster than existing solutions. PowerDRC/LVS achieves this scalability and turnaround time through the use of a unique data structure and native window scanning technique.

Production Quality

During beta test period, POLYTEDA team worked with wide list of partners and evaluators in Europe, US and India to validate accuracy and performance for production on real designs.
