Does LFD support any topographic maps derived from CMP modelling? I am not sure if mentor has a product for CMP Modelling,
which generate topogaraphy maps.
Hi Sajan. We do have a tool for CMP modeling. It's called Calibre CMPAnalyzer. If you want more information about it, Craig Larsen is the technical marketing engineer that supports this product. You could ask your Mentor contact to schedule a meeting with him if you like. I believe that it does CMP simulation, determines the amount of copper loss, and produces output data to show the amount of copper loss. I believe that this output can be put into Calibre xRC, so that when you extract parasitics, the resistance and capacitance values change depending on the thickness change. I'm not sure what other things you can do with the output data, but I'm sure that Craig would know. I assume that it's linked in with all of the DFM reporting capabilities, so you would have color maps and such. This is just speculation on my part though.
