Saratoga Design Systems maintains a test suite of more than 100 GDSII Stream files on which it rigorously tests BANTAM for accuracy. BANTAM is not released unless it successfully passes all tests. BANTAM endured a rigorous six month customer beta test period in which its accuracy was tested on hundreds more full chip GDSII Stream design. BANTAM’s accuracy was verified using the exclusive-or (XOR) function of several popular physical verification products. Additionally, BANTAM runs its own on-the-fly check and reports on the results.
