Tanner EDA and Sound Design Technologies (SDT) have teamed together to develop process design kits (PDKs) for analog/mixed-signal (A/MS) designers using Tanner EDA’s HiPer Silicon software. Sound Design Technologies’ PDKs for Tanner Tools will be available this quarter.
X-FAB Silicon Foundries announced the XO035 0.35 micrometer process. The XO035 foundry process is optimized for Blu-ray and high-speed optical data communication applications. XO035 includes X-FAB’s blue PIN module. The integration of the PIN diode into the 0.35 micrometer CMOS environment enables the design of high-performance photo detectors. The XO035 process is available now.
