How to debug non-texted shorts using Calibre RVE


In addition to the texted shorts that are caught as part of the extraction process, there are non-texted shorts generated during the

comparison process. Non-texted shorts are actual connectivity issues that have been analyzed and found to be a short by the comparison

process. Once all of the texted shorts have been corrected, users can begin debugging these comparison errors, which can sometimes be tricky

to correct. In this video we will learn how to use Calibre RVE to quickly debug non-texted shorts. Overview: To help fix non-texted

shorts, users can use Calibre RVE to see a visual representation of the layout and source netlists used in the LVS run, and debug LVS

discrepancies by comparing the source and layout schematics side-by-side. These schematics are especially valuable to designers when

schematics are not otherwise available for debug (e.g., Verilog). Tools Used in the Video: Calibre DESIGNrev, Calibre LVS and Calibre RVE.
