MunEDA Exhibits and Presents at TSMC OIP Ecosystem Forum 2012

Demonstrates Custom Design Support for TSMC 20nm Processes

SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 10, 2012MunEDA, developer of the industry’s broadest family of advanced circuit analysis, modeling and optimization solutions, now supports TSMC 20nm process technology and will exhibit this capability at the TSMC OIP Open Innovation Platform Ecosystem Forum 2012 at the San Jose Convention Center, on October 16, 2012. MunEDA also will present in the Forum’s Technical Proceeding Book several circuit tutorial cases using the MunEDA WiCkeDTM analysis and sizing environment targeting TSMC 20nm process technology. The tutorial cases include a high-sigma worst-case analysis of a memory SRAM bitcell as well as numerical sizing of a high-speed I/O level shifter.

According to Michael Pronath, MunEDA vice president of Products & Solutions, “Using WiCkeD with TSMC process technologies helps designers improve the robustness of circuit designs against parametric process variation, achieve performance, power and area requirements, and improve efficiency to reduce design time. Key application areas include typical full-custom designs such as low-power AMS/RF circuit design, high-speed digital I/O, libraries and memory.”

Numerical sizing is the calculation of optimal device geometries for a full-custom design, for example high-speed I/O or memory interfaces. Sizing aims at improving performance and statistical robustness, as well as reducing area or power consumption. It is a key design task in full-custom design, but is still performed manually by many designers.
