In an ever competitive market place design teams are often faced with the challenge of providing differentiated products by achieving market leading power performance and area (PPA) targets to drive future.

The Benefits of a Physical Design Flow & Methodology

Physical Implementation Apr 1, 2016 9:44:13 AM


A key element in both the technical success and final cost of an RTL2GDSII engagement is the quality of the design methodology & flow that is used. Engineering processes that are reliable and repeatable.

Physical Design - Package Substrate Simulations at Advanced Nodes

Physical Implementation Feb 26, 2016 1:17:02 PM

Why is there a Need for This?

Quite simply, if you don't get this right you could be looking at a partial, or complete failure of the chip to function. And this will cost time and money to go and find the problem and to.
