Mentor Graphics launched Calibre xACT 3D for parasitic RC extraction. Calibre xACT 3D is a solution for high-accuracy, transistor-level extraction. The tool combines a deterministic field solver with traditional, rule-based production extraction tools. It is a complete parasitic extraction solution with deterministic field solver accuracy, process variation modeling, electrically aware reduction, and industry-standard netlist formats, all within the design environment. Calibre xACT 3D is available now.
