Sample text

BE design has many checking tools. Electrical rule check (ERC) checks electrical rules for gate interconnection. Design rule check (DRC) checks physical spacing and sizing rules for layout and placement. Logic versus schematic (LVS) checks that the physical wiring matches the schematic or HDL description. After the place and routing, extraction tools compute the physical lengths of wires and spaces. Delay calculators use this information to predict accurate gate and wire delays. A static timing analyzer tool analyzes signal delays through gates and wires to ensure that no signal or clock is late.
