Modelling of 10nm parasitic effects is ratified

Synopsys has released extensions to its open-source Interconnect Technology Format (ITF) which enable modelling of complex device and interconnect parasitic effects at the advanced 10nm process node. The extensions include modelling of variation effects due to Multi-Patterning Technology (MPT). Synopsys collaborated with the members of the Interconnect Modeling Technical Advisory Board (IMTAB), an IEEE-ISTO Federation Member Program, to define and ratify these extensions. The extensions will be available in the upcoming open-source ITF version 2015.06.
