Sierra Design Automation is a privately funded EDA company founded in January 2003.
Sierra Olympus-SoC interacts with Calibre LFD to obtain the database of lithography hot-spots and litho-unfriendly structures and then changes the design layout to fix these errors without affecting the overall timing performance and OCV-related hold violations.
We are excited to work with Sierra Design Automation and its variability-aware implementation system because it is an ideal platform to take advantage of this analysis to make timing-driven layout modification trade-offs at earlier stages of the design flow to dramatically improve layout robustness across process windows.
