Altos Design Automation and Extreme DA developed a signal-integrity (SI) design flow for integrated circuit (IC) designs manufactured at process nodes of 65-nanometers (nm) and below. Extreme DA GoldTime for use with Altos Variety and Liberate models is available now from Extreme DA. Pricing varies depending on configuration. Altos Variety and Liberate approved libraries for Extreme DA GoldTime are available now from Altos.
Imec and Altos Design Automation will to set up a library re-characterization service based on Altos characterization tools. imec will extend their ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) prototyping and volume fabrication service with library re-characterization, which is essential when designing in 65nm and 40nm nodes.
