Performance and accuracy in cloud-based physical verification
Physical verification (PV) of an integrated circuit design is a critical step that must be completed prior to handing off a design to the foundry for manufacturing. It is a task that demands both performance and accuracy. Performance is required in to order meet schedule requirements in a competitive marketplace where time-to-market is a key driver.

The sweet spots for PVCloud physical verification

PVCloud has been optimized to deliver performance and accuracy over a wide range of applications and process geometries for integrated circuit designs with the cost-efficiencies of cloud-computing. PVCloud is ideal for:

  • Silicon-based designs targeting digital, analog mixed-signal, MEMS, memory, photonics, rad hard, power management and RF
  • Process geometries from 40nm to 250nm
  • Fabless IC houses, IP design groups, and foundries


Key performance and accuracy benefits of PVCloud

  • One-Shot technology supports scalable multi-CPU parallelism up to 128 CPUs
    • Scale up and down depending on performance needs and schedule
    • Natively flat design delivers the highest physical verification accuracy
  • Highly predictable run-times based on design size
    • Much more efficient use of resources – match performance needs to schedule through use of scalable multi-CPU processing
  • Supports any-angled design geometries
    • Delivers sign-off accuracy even for non-Manhattan geometries
  • Sign-off certified at multiple foundries for 40, 65, 130, 180 and 250 nm processes
    • Reduce project risk and costs
    • Accuracy: PVCloud has been documented to find errors that other more expensive physical verification products have missed
  • Cloud-based solution allows control and tradeoffs for budget, performance, and schedule
    • PVCloud works with the most widely used EDA tools and flows
