Naito Densei Adopted Silvaco's EDA Flow and Successfully Taped Out ICs

YOKOHAMA, JAPAN -- (Marketwired) -- Apr 16, 2014 -- Silvaco Japan Co., Ltd (Silvaco) has announced that Naito Densei Kogyo Co., Ltd. (Naito Densei) has adopted Silvaco's EDA flow and has successfully taped out their analog ICs.

Naito Densei is an electronics company involved in the production of cutting edge power circuits and sensor peripheral circuits. In the design of sensor peripheral circuits, Naito Densei has adopted Silvaco PDK for its excellent productivity. Effective use of PDK requires the seamless integration of high performance EDA tools. In this project, Silvaco EDA flow was used, including Gateway schematic editor, SmartSpice analog circuit simulator, Expert layout editor and Guardian DRC/LVS physical verification tools.

Ikuo Uetake, General Manager of the LSI Design Division of Naito Densei said, "In the development of products, high integration, high reliability, low cost and short turn around time are all very important factors. To realize these goals, enhancement of the function and performance of EDA tools and the PDK support are indispensable. The PDK lineup is the key to working with different foundries in Japan and other countries. This time, the adoption of Silvaco's analog EDA flow with their excellent PDK support and quick technical support resulted in the tape-out on schedule as intended. From now on, we would like to establish the analog and mixed-signal design flow including the digital design tools."

David Halliday, CEO of Silvaco said, "We are pleased that Silvaco's analog EDA flow was adopted by Naito Densei. The outstanding collaboration between Naito Densei's and Silvaco's engineers provided the know-how needed in the device development. The success in the development of the analog IC, which required high-level technologies, is the result of this collaboration. We will continue to provide the very best EDA environment for Naito Densei and all of our customers."
