MOUNTAIN VIEW, CASynopsys Inc. has added extensions to its Liberty library format that will reportedly allow engineers to control design margins, improve design robustness and increase parametric yield.

According to the company, the new extensions are meant to allow a high level of accuracy and are built on the Composite Current Source (CCS) models that aim to unify timing, signal integrity and power.

Process variation models allow variation-aware design and emerging applications such as statistical static timing analysis, which account for uncertainties due to variability in device and interconnect at sub-65nm technology nodes.

The Liberty library extensions are a key part of the company’s strategy to address the emerging DFM challenges at sub-65nm by allowing variation-aware design and furthering openness and interoperability in the industry.
