Cadence Design Systems, Inc. has introduced the Cadence® Precision Router, a space-based, full-chip and block routing device for advanced mixed-signal, analog and custom digital designs. The product accelerates design and manufacturing convergence by allowing designers to model manufacturing effects during the design process for design performance closure. It uses a three-dimensional, space-based modeling approach to analyze true shapes and intervening physical spaces to handle the complexity inherent in design sizes and shrinking process geometries. This router was designed to optimize tiered and preferred manufacturing rules concurrently with electrical objectives, allowing designers to achieve higher quality results in the shortest amount of time. The product also features multi-threaded routing for fast turnaround on the large designs that are common at leading-edge process nodes.
