Winchester, UK - IMEC, the independent nanoelectronics research center headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, is to collaborate with Mephisto Design Automation (MDA) to develop mixed-signal design for reconfigurable radios within IMEC's green radios program by using MDA's customer proven product M-DESIGN.
M-DESIGN offers analog and mixed-signal designers immediate productivity gains for their front-end design tasks. The platform facilitates setting up and executing complex simulations, verifications and optimization, even across different abstraction levels. The tool also provides support for process migrations, fully automatic documentation and IP reuse.
IMEC will start using the tool in the IMEC green radios program to support their most advanced RF circuit design activity for technologies down to 40nm. IMEC's green radio research program works on reconfigurable technology solutions for the mobile terminals of tomorrow.
