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.
