Keywords:RS extraction  Quantus  FinFET 

Cadence Design Systems Inc. developed its next-generation tool for RC extraction, the Quantus QRC Extraction Solution.

With its massively parallel architecture, Quantus QRC Extraction Solution accelerates design signoff and sets a new standard for performance by delivering up to five times faster runtime for single and multi-corner extraction versus competing solutions. Additionally, its accuracy and FinFET functionality have been certified at TSMC.

Quantus QRC Extraction Solution leverages the high-accuracy modelling engine from Cadence's previous-generation QRC Extraction product, ensuring direct compatibility and fully certified libraries for all foundries for existing users of QRC Extraction. The new tool also provides significant enhancements to support FinFET features. It includes the same custom/analogue functionality of QRC Extraction and supports the same foundry-certified and -qualified "qrctechfiles." In addition, Quantus QRC Extraction Solution is proven to have the tightest correlation to foundry golden data at TSMC versus competing solutions.

Quantus QRC Extraction Solution supports both system-on-chip and custom/analogue designs and includes a new foundry-certified integrated random-walk field solver called Quantus FS, which is up to five times faster and provides better throughput versus competing solutions. An automated incremental extraction capability reduces design closure turnaround time with up to an additional three times performance improvement with Cadence Encounter Digital Implementation System and Tempus Timing Signoff Solution. In-design signoff methodology has been enhanced in both Encounter and Virtuoso platforms.

"After validating the runtimes of Cadence's Quantus QRC Extraction Solution on benchmark designs, we have determined that it offers significant improvements without compromising signoff accuracy," said Sumbal Rafiq, director of Engineering at AppliedMicro. "Quantus QRC Extraction Solution's ability to perform multi-corner extraction in a single run using foundry-certified accuracy enables notable design implementation time improvements."
