PARIS austriamicrosystems AG (AMS) announced it has implemented Library Creator, Nangate's integrated digital cell library creation and characterization solution, to increase library development productivity and improve its IP portfolio performance and quality.
AMS (Premstaetten, Austria) explained that Nangate Library Creator contributed to improve the effectiveness of its digital IP development teams, enabling them to build digital cell libraries which have enhanced performance beyond the capabilities of commercially available cell libraries. This has enhanced their capability to deliver robust, high performance and energy efficient silicon solutions and also to supply their foundry customers with higher quality IP, the company claimed.
"Nangate's Library Creator tool suite has enabled our library development team to develop higher density and performance standard cell libraries than we could obtain externally," commented Thomas Riener, vice president and general manager BU Full Service Foundry, at austriamicrosystems.
Riener added: "The tool suite continues to help austriamicrosystems increase the efficiency and significantly reduce the cost of developing digital cell libraries for our specialty analog/mixed-signal process technologies."
Early June, Nangate and LFoundry announced that Nangate had released an OpenAccess database integration module for the Nangate Library Creator platform. The new module extends support for OpenAccess enabled EDA tools and iPDK developments and is used for LFoundry's OpenAccess based LF150 PDK.
