calibre dracula

Calibre is more efficient than diva and dracula. The calibre rule deck file has better readibility than that of dracula. But diva is very convience for small layouts.

calibre tutorial

Hi

I dont know the advantage of calibre over assura but looks like calibre is becoming the more "standard and opted for" verification tool in the US.

diva assura dracula

I have seen Assura have segmentation faults (crash) or lock up with larger designs. Calibre would run on the same designs with no issue. The syntax for the calibre rule decks is also easier to learn - at least it was for me.

The Assura user interface is friendlier but Calibre is not bad.

The results should be the same(depends on rule deck writer).. but both have most of the features... the only advantage Calibre has is it runs fast..

Calibre has more market than assura

Hi

Please see the Image , this is a post layout simulation result at 6 GHz for a CMOS Mixer with Calibre, Assura and Schematic(without post layout), as you can see it seems that both Assura and Calibre have the same results. (Technology : 90nm)
