Magwel introduces ESDi-XL with major new features
ESDi-XL adds core device checking, plus schematic only checks and sophisticated topological checks for ESD issues. Now circuit designers can quickly check their designs for ESD issues before committing to layout. Comprehensive core checking will find core devices that might become over-stressed, even when a protecting ESD device triggers. New topological checks quickly identify issues in circuits that can cause ESD related failures. ESDi-XL supports layout-based checks for more accurate analysis at later stages of the design process.
Webinar Replay – Designing and Verifying HBM ESD Protection Networks
In this webinar Sofics and Magwel will talk about how they contribute to solving the problem of ESD discharges. Bart Keppins of Sofics will discuss how they work with their customers to design and develop a comprehensive ESD protection network, including customized ESD protection cells and the supporting circuitry. Magwel will give an overview of the Magwel ESDi verification software using models and circuit design information to verify the effectiveness of the protection.
