Company: Fenix Design Automation
Booth: 534
Media Contact: Hein van der Wildt
Phone: 408-437-7788

Fenix-DA has created a much needed set of tools which are applied towards consistency checking of components of the designflow, starting with the enormous variety of library formats. All these different formats (f.i. Verilog, VHDL, .lib, schematic, Spice, lef, Milkyway, just to name a few) present a significant challenge to the chip designer since there are many inconsistencies / inaccuracies amongst these views.

Shrinking geometries and increasing density makes a professional Validation tool a real necessity. Validation checks include both digital and analog libraries and small IP blocks.
The ultimate goal of Fenix is to offer the client a Quality assessment of the entire designflow, thereby avoiding tape-out delays or re-spins.
