LONDON Mixed signal IP specialist Silicon & Software Systems Ltd. (S3) has joined Giga Scale Integration Corporation’s ChipEstimate.com IP Partners Program.
The alliance will deliver the complete portfolio of IP developed by S3 to all users of Giga Scale IC's InCyte chip estimation software.
InCyte accurately and rapidly estimates die size, power, leakage, yield, and cost at the earliest stages of the design flow, when the greatest cost savings can be realized. Giga Scale IC claims the tool is becoming the de facto standard for chip estimation among ASIC vendors and design services providers.
"Our co-operation with Giga Scale IC provides convenient access to our technology for our current and prospective customers who will be able to access the small footprint and low power capability of our IP as they evaluate their SoC design options through InCyte," said Bob Tait, Product Marketing Manager at S3, in a statement.
ChipEstimate.com , launched earlier this year, is a web site developed and maintained by Giga Scale IC which allows designers to download a no-cost version of the InCyte tool.
