ABSTRACT
The article provides information on Blaze Mo, a tool which can reduce transistor leakage power, leakage variability and improve timing without the need for changing the layouts of 90- and 65-nm integrated circuit designs, as claimed by its manufacturer BlazeDFM. Blaze Mo runs concurrently with physical-verification tools. Users input Graphic Design System II (GDSII) and industry-standard formats. Blaze Mo analyzes the layout and gate length variability within the rules of a given foundry and creates an annotation layer in the GDSII to direct commercial optical proximity- correction tools to make adjustments to the design.
