AWR and Zuken launched AWR Connected for Zuken. The RF verification flow provides a pathway from Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force PCB design software into AWR’s Microwave Office high-frequency simulation software. AWR Connected for Zuken is available now from AWR. CR-8000 Design Force PCB design suite is available from Zuken.
Cadence Design Systems and GLOBALFOUNDRIES teamed together to reduce the turnaround time for design-for-manufacturing (DFM) signoff at 28 nanometers. Their verification flow features Cadence in-design DFM technology and GLOBALFOUNDRIES DRC+ methodology. The in-design DRC+ verification flow enables engineers to find and fix potential lithography hotspot problems that could reduce yield or even threaten viability of complex chip designs headed for manufacturing.
