NanoYield

Yield Oriented Design Platform

Introduction

NanoYield is a yield oriented design platform for analysis and optimization of circuit yield in memory, digital and analog circuits. Based on Primarius' unique technology of statistical modeling and high-sigma analysis algorithms, NanoYield performs circuit statistical simulation with non-destructive precision, as well as acceleration through efficient algorithms and parallelization.

NanoYield improved designer productivity with the user-friendly GUI-based DFY (design for yield) environment called NDE (Nano Design Environment). NDE allows users to run variation analysis, predict yield, and assess the effectiveness of yield and circuit optimization efforts based on the design goals to improve product competitiveness.
