Ubixum Adopts Synopsys Galaxy Custom Designer Mixed-Signal Implementation Solution

Ease of Deployment Critical in Meeting Time-to-Market Requirements

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design and manufacturing, today announced that Ubixum has adopted Synopsys' Galaxy Custom Designer(TM) solution, the industry's first modern-era mixed-signal implementation solution. Ubixum needed a solution that would address the custom design implementation requirements of their latest advanced image sensor array for biomedical applications while meeting time-to market schedules. The Custom Designer toolset fit easily into the Ubixum flow and delivered initial results in just a few days, demonstrating significantly improved productivity with higher quality.

"We were able to easily deploy Custom Designer in our design flow, and it produced better results than we had achieved before," said Keith Fife, cofounder of Ubixum. "Our design team became immediately productive using the Custom Designer schematic editor and layout editor. The tool is modern, very well architected and integrates flawlessly with HSPICE, Hercules and Star-RCXT. We were able to design, implement and verify results within one week of using the tool. Custom Designer is intuitive to use and we expect to gain even more productivity benefits as we use it for future designs."

Built from the ground up, Custom Designer was architected for productivity. Key modules include a schematic editor featuring on-canvas editing and dynamic net highlighting. The simulation environment provides a common use model allowing access to Synopsys simulators, including the HSPICE(R), HSIM(TM) XA, NanoSim(R) XA and WaveView Analyzer simulators. The layout editor features a real-time preview of P-Cell parameter changes, and the results from Synopsys' Hercules(TM) DRC/LVS and Star-RCXT(TM) parasitic extraction tools are dynamically available within Custom Designer. In addition, Custom Designer enables complete data transparency with Synopsys' IC Compiler physical implementation solution, allowing the exchange of vital information during floorplanning, placement, routing and final chip editing to reduce time-consuming design iterations.

"Ubixum's successful adoption of Custom Designer underscores Synopsys' commitment to do for custom design what we have done for digital implementation, helping designers address modern AMS-era challenges with efficiency," said Bijan Kiani, vice president of Product Marketing for Design and Manufacturing Tools at Synopsys. "We look forward to working closely with companies like Ubixum to enable their full use of Custom Designer to achieve higher performance and productivity, and to help them realize a competitive advantage."
