The role the Optical Rule Check (ORC) in the design flow and future directions are discussed, the benefit of the model-based methodology is illustrated by using realistic layout situations. Concepts for implementation of Litho-friendly Design (LfD), i.e., of layout optimization and lithography simulations in the pre-tapeout design flow are developed.
