Using GateScope, FlexStream is able to drastically reduce noise in large cell-based ICs
Rather, the SOS Initiative will leverage the best of today's top-down ASIC and cell-based IC
design tools and flows by bringing them together to bridge the gap between logical and physical design," said Rhines.
Jordan Selburn, principal analyst of Dataquest's ASIC/SLI and Semiconductor IP service, predicted SLI will fuel the growth of the cell-based IC
market as MPUs, DRAMs, and other intellectual property (IP) blocks are integrated on-chip.
11, 1997--Silicon Valley Research (SVR) today announced the release of SonIC-IV which has the capacity to place and route cell-based IC
designs with up to 250,000 cells.
More than 70 percent of today's cell-based IC
designs have on-chip memory and about one third of the die area is typically used for memory.
We will now be able to offer turnkey solutions to cell-based IC
foundries and systems houses not only in embedded arrays but also in structured custom design and systems-on-silicon.
Aquarius-BV provides channel- and compaction-based layout for cell-based IC
designs; Aquarius-XO is an extended option with improved multi-layer area-based technologies.
0 micron gate array, embedded cell array and cell-based IC
8-volt power supplies and have a design and production turnaround time of approximately six weeks, 30 to 60 percent shorter than cell-based ICs
manufactured in the same process.
