New electro-thermal simulation subsystem was introduced into Mentor Graphics IC Design flow. The subsystem incorporates IC thermal simulation tool ldquoOverheatrdquo, dispatcher ldquoETh SimCouplerrdquo as the simulation manager and layout converter ldquoETh Model Generatorrdquo. Application example of power voltage regulator IC simulation is described. A good agreement between simulated and IR-camera measured temperature pictures is achieved.
