Texas Instruments (TI) is integrating Mentor Graphics Corp.'s Calibre physical verification tool suite to its ASIC, logic, mixed-signal and analog semiconductor processes. TI plans to integrate Calibre by the fourth quarter of this year.

Calibre's physical verification tool suite is comprised of Calibre DRC and Calibre LVS. The tool suite is designed to ensure that IC physical designs conform to foundry manufacturing rules and match the intended functionality of the chip. Calibre features design style-independent execution to provide optimal performance on designs, ranging from RAM to SoCs, using a single and qualified rule file.

Additionally, Calibre provides advanced debugging capabilities such as intuitive error reporting, a graphical results viewing environment and hierarchical error isolation.
