    Re: ASSURA VS CALIBRE VS DIVA

    I prefer Calibre. It is faster and easy to use.

    I think Calibre is the industry-standard for back-end verfication. It's very powerful and it's not hard to learn

    ASSURA VS CALIBRE VS DIVA

    Obviously Calibra is better in its easy usage and powerful functionalities. However, Cadence has the most complete flow and Assura is also not too bad.

    Re: ASSURA VS CALIBRE VS DIVA

    Calibre is best.............75% market is captured by Mentor
    it is good for Digital layout

    Assura is good for Analog layout

    if it is mixed then calibre......................

    Re: ASSURA VS CALIBRE VS DIVA

    Calibre is the industry standard as said before.
    If your process supports Calibre definitely go for it.
    For large and complicated circuits it is much faster.

    For smaller and simpler assura is also good.

    digital: Calibre
    Custom digital/analog: Assura
    small analog design & older process for 0.18um: Diva

    for RF circuit postsimulation: only for Assura rcx.

    Calibre is better for DRC and LVS
    Assrua is better for EXT.

    Re: ASSURA VS CALIBRE VS DIVA

    I have used Assura & Calibre, both the tools are good and every tool has its pro's & cons....

    Calibre:
    Calibre is used as the Sign Off tool for physical verification and used by many. Process runtime is very quick & less for large gate count designs. But calibre needs a graphical interfacer to flag its errors. The error checker runset is also well built for calibre i.e. it covers all major errors.

    Assura:
    Assura is slow in processing big designs. It does not need graphical interfacer. Debugging errors is easy.

    Diva:
    Used by very few people.

    ASSURA VS CALIBRE VS DIVA

    We use diva three years ago.
    Now, we use calibre.

    Some foundry does not provide the rules of diva.

    Re: ASSURA VS CALIBRE VS DIVA

    Hi.

    I have used both calibre and assura on very large transceiver designs and realised that while assura is much more user friendly with excellent cross-probing capability and an easy to use short locator, it cannot verify large digital blocks (a typical sea of gates with embedded memories) for example - calibre can! Also, calibre is much faster as designs get bigger. I still think Assura is a better tool though, it's just a pity it can't handle embedded memories.

    Cheers.
