PowerDRC/LVS 2.0 released
Kiev, Ukraine, July 29 2014

POLYTEDA UKRAINE LLC, a provider of semiconductor design software and PV-services, today announced the general availability of PowerDRC/LVS version 2.0.
The release of this major new version brings new powerful functionality and considerably enhanced performance:

  • New algorithms of parallel processing in PowerDRC expand parallelism from rules to layout thus dramatically enhancing scalability to 16, 32, 64, and more CPUs. Also, parallelism is now fully supported on all platforms supported by PowerDRC/LVS including Windows.

  • Added new capabilities and improved usability of PowerRDE:

    • Now you can simultaneously highlight all errors of the same type
    • Error visualization was added for the hierarchical mode of DRC
    • Now you can separately define top cells for schematic and layout.
    • It got new controls and new tabs for interim logs of new parallel processing
  • Revised and improved PowerDRC/LVS operation in a cloud environment
  • Added IgnoreCells command for explicit listing of cells to ignore
  • Improved PowerNVN behavior with many options
  • Improved readability of PowerDRC/LVS logs and summary

PowerDRC/LVS is designed to process integrated circuit (IC) designs of various size at technology nodes up to 40nm, with run times which are fast and completely predictable. It is massively scalable and provides turnaround 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 tive window scanning technique.

Production Quality

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