Insights on StarRC Standalone Netlist Reducer
With the ever-growing size of extracted netlists, parasitic optimization is key to achieve practical simulation run times. Key trade-off for any netlist reducer is accuracy vs netlist size. StarRC Standalone Netlist reducer provides the flexibility to optimize your netlist on a per net basis. The user has total control of trading accuracy of some nets versus netlist optimization - yet another feature from StarRC to provide flexibility to the designer.

Chalk Talks Featuring Synopsys

Yield Explorer and SiliconDash
One a design goes to tape-out, the real challenges begin. Teams find themselves drowning in data from design-process-test during production ramp-up, and have to cope with data from numerous sources in different formats in the manufacturing test supply chain. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mark Laird of Synopsys in part three of our series on the Silicon LifeCycle Management (SLM) platform, discussing how Yield Explorer and SiliconDash give valuable insight to engineering and manufacturing teams.
