Extraction Tool Makes Grade On TSMC’s 45-nm Process

Cadence Design Systems’ QRC Extraction tool now handles parasitic extraction for designs targeted at TSMC’s 45-nm process technology. The 45-nm node presents typical advanced technology challenges, including aggressive design rules, smaller SRAM cells, and higher gate density. As process technology scales down to 45 nm, manufacturing effects impact design-for-manufacturability considerations that must be addressed by accurate extraction technology to ensure reliable designs.

TSMC has validated that QRC Extraction provides accurate handling of 45-nm manufacturing effects. Cadence QRC Extraction supports designers in high-growth IC markets, such as consumer electronics, mobile devices, RFID, and wired/wireless networking systems. Designers who need highly accurate extraction for fast and complex wireless SoCs and RFICs can now use the Cadence QRC Extraction tool with TSMC’s 45-nm process technology.

According to TSMC spokesmen, QRC Extraction achieves high silicon correlation between measured and extracted results.
