Lincoln, MA--November 14, 1996--SGS-THOMSON Microelectronics (Lincoln, MA) has announced the release of its CB45000 series of standard cells to the general market. The CB45000 uses a 0.35 m HCMOS6 process and up to five levels of metalization to deliver a high-performance semi-custom technology. The technology provides a typical usable gate density of 15 kgates per square mm., including routing and the ability to implement systems with a complexity of over 3 million equivalent gates. The library of embedded functions includes powerful microcontroller and DSP functions.
Although the transistors used in the CB45000 core logic have been specifically designed and optimized for operation at 3.3V, the I/O circuitry supports all common interface standards, including LVCMOS, LVTTL, LVDS, PCI, 5V tolerant interfaces, and others. The library also includes a full set of I/O cells.
For the design of CB45000 products, Cadence, Synopsys, and Mentor Graphics products can be used for design capture, and simulation, while full support is provided for other third-party tools including IKOS, Motive, Crosscheck, and Sunrise.
