In-design verification is needed to shorten design cycles and maximize circuit performance, ensuring physical designs are correct by construction. Physical verification often forces a decision between accuracy and performance for larger designs. Cloud infrastructure needs are pushing the industry toward larger multi-core server architectures and massively parallel computing frameworks. This article explores how these massively parallel frameworks can be combined with in-design verification methodologies to allow field solvers to provide golden levels of extraction and simulation accuracy at acceptable levels of performance for larger designs.
