Calibre xACT 3D provides results at speeds an order of magnitude faster than existing field solvers in singleCPU comparisons. Implementation scales almost linearly with additional CPUs or cores, so multiple CPUs can be added to achieve turn-around times that were previously only available with less accurate rule- based methods. Using Calibre xACT 3D on a multi-CPU platform allows high accuracy with a faster turn- around time, thus shortening design cycle times. To further improve efficiency, the design engineer also can select a subset of nets to be extracted and vary the accuracy of the field solver.

Features and Benefits:

  • Highest Extraction Accuracy –Integrated capacitance field solver delivers reference-level accuracy with deterministic results. Calibre xACT 3D extracts complex contextsensitive device and interconnect parasitic effects needed to accurately predict circuit behavior
  • Reliable Results – Calibre xACT 3D accurately handles close spacings, rotations and symmetry without accuracy penalty or uncertainty typical of statistical field solvers, which is crucial for sensitive designs
  • Fast Performance – Proprietary BEM/FEM-based field-solver technology delivers accurate results sooner. Multi-threaded and distributed processing ensures virtually unlimited design scope with fast, scalable performance comparable to rule-based extraction
  • Easy-to-Use – Like all Calibre products, Calibre xACT 3D uses standard SVRF rule files and produces standard parasitic netlist formats. The graphical user interface for design environments speeds setup and debugging cycles
  • Zero-risk investment and superior quality – Calibre xACT 3D is integrated with Calibre nmLVS and the Calibre Physical Verification Platform to provide trusted device recognition, connectivity extraction, and ease-of-use in existing customer sign-off flows
