Design-For-Yield Platform


NanoYield™ is an advanced design-for-yield platform that, integrates  the key components from a single vendor: (1) advanced device modeling, (2) a parallel SPICE simulation engine and (3) hardware-validated statistical analysis algorithms.

NanoYield significantly increases statistical circuit analysis speeds with its superior parallelization technology and highly efficient and accurate statistical algorithms. This enables designers to run yield predication as well as yield-PPA (power, performance and area) trade-off for memory, digital and analog circuits. Primarius offers an integrated GUI-based DFY (design for yield) environment – Nano Design Environment (NDE) - to assist designers in running variation analysis, predict yield, in addition to guiding their designs for yield and PPA.
