POLYTEDA LLC provides verification software that combines accuracy and scalability. Our unique technology makes PowerDRC/LVS from POLYTEDA the best solution for medium and large IC layouts and modern IC process nodes.

A large number of developers as well as our customers use KLayout editor so POLYTEDA integrated PowerRDE with KLayout.

PowerRDE  integration with KLayout viewer and editor is available since PowerDRC/LVS release 1.7 and enables the user to:

  • Invoke PowerDRC/LVS from KLayout
  • Review results and highlight errors in KLayout
  • Find and highlight shorted nets using POLYTEDA Short Finder utility




The integration requires that the source  code of KLayout should be changed to allow for running PowerDRC/LVS and for debugging of highlighted violations.

To use this feature you need to download KLayout 0.23.11 specifically modified by POLYTEDA.

You can download the binary and source code of the modified version of KLayout free as required by GPL from this page.
