Intel Custom Foundry certifies Mentor physical verification tools for 22FFL FinFET low power process

Mentor, a Siemens business, announced it has achieved tape-out sign-off certification of the Calibre® physical verification platform and Analog FastSPICE™ (AFS™) circuit simulation platform for the new Intel® 22FFL (FinFET low power) process technology. Mutual customers of Intel Custom Foundry and Mentor can now extend their use of Mentor-based flows to perform design rule checking (DRC), layout vs. schematic checking (LVS), electrical reliability analysis, and advanced fill on their integrated circuit (IC) designs for Intel Custom Foundry’s new 22FFL design platform. In addition, custom and analog/mixed-signal designers can perform fast, accurate circuit verification and simulation. More information can be found here.
