" Interconnect extraction and analysis has always been a bottleneck in our design flow, and is becoming a critical obstacle now, especially for our power management designs. We knew we needed a tool that plugs into Virtuoso to do interactive interconnect extraction and analysis such as pin-to-pin resistance check, point-to-point resistance check, pin-to-pin delay analysis and interconnect bottleneck analysis etc. After a rigorous evaluation using our real, production designs, we determined that Empyrean’s RCExplorer demonstrated an extremely high level of performance and accuracy. Plus, the tool was easy to integrate into our existing design environment. "
