The Jivaro model order based technology is the only
independent industrial netlist reduction technology available, which applies on post-layout extracted netlists.
Jivaro remodels and reduces the
parasitic overhead in a way that the simulation tool in place is able to simulate larger netlists, or reduce
the memory footprint and the execution time.
