Raydium Standardizes on SpringSoft Laker System for Custom Design of LCD Driver ICs

HSINCHU, Taiwan—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 4, 2009— SpringSoft, Inc., a global supplier of specialized IC design software, today announced that Raydium Semiconductor Corporation has standardized on the Laker™ Custom Layout System. Raydium is a global solution provider of TFT-LCD driver ICs that are used in both large and small display panel products. By adopting the Laker software product, Raydium engineers are better able to address the time-to-market pressures, cost and increased complexity of custom chip design for high performance, low-power LCD applications.

As a long-time Laker system customer, Raydium has integrated the powerful rules-driven automation and device-level features into its standard design layout methodologies. Engineers have realized as much as 50 percent time savings during layout operations, using the patented Laker Magic Cell (MCell™) technology that automates device generation, editing, and manipulation, and the Laker schematic-driven layout (SDL) flow that enables Raydium engineers to quickly comprehend the physical implementation and any associated ECOs.

“We are continuously fine-tuning methodologies and tool flows, in order to improve the efficiency of our design and layout teams,” said Chin-Chieh Chao, Vice President of Development Center at Raydium. “We’ve been using the Laker system for more than four years now because it provides the most efficient platform for custom layout. The time our engineers save in layout by using Laker is spent creating the highest quality designs, which is critical to our success in becoming the trusted IC partner for our customers.”

“Our aim is to save engineers time,” stated Duncan McDonald, Director of Custom IC Product Marketing at SpringSoft. “We’re happy to see that customers like Raydium are taking advantage of our unique Laker technology so they can spend more time adding value to their designs.”

About The Laker Custom Layout System

The Laker layout system offers the power of controllable automation and unmatched interoperability to achieve superior layout results with less effort for analog, mixed-signal, and custom digital designs. More than 300 companies worldwide, including 7 of the top 10 semiconductor companies, have adopted the Laker layout system for designs down to 45 nanometers.
