A robust PDK (Process Design Kit) can aid an IC (Integrated Circuit) designer to achieve 1st pass silicon. An IDM (Integrated Device Manufacturer) will create their own PDK since they have their own fabs (Fabrication Plants). A fabless semiconductor company will rely initially on a PDK provided by the foundry and then it will integrate its own devices, DRC (Design Rule Checks), models, and wrappers as they get more comfortable with the process. A foundry will supply PDKs to both IDMs based on process specifications to minimize human error and to increase the chances that a design will function so that they can sell more wafers to their customers.

All components used in an IC (Integrated Circuits) have maximum voltage /current ratings that must not be exceeded in order to avoid destruction or a reduction of lifetime. These max ratings are easily overlooked we help you identify these issues before tapeout/stream out your gds2.
