January 4, 2010 -- The significant burden of parasitics on the performance of post-layout verification forces design engineers to use additional techniques in order to match the requirements of next-generation designs. A real gap appears between layout extraction and circuit simulation when adding layout parasitics into the flow. A review of the existing techniques as well as a merciless way to doubtlessly validate netlist reduction and circuit extraction are presented in this paper.
