eSilicon Adds GDSII Handoff to Suite of Online SoC Automation Tools

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- May 23, 2014 -- eSilicon Corporation, a leading independent semiconductor design and manufacturing solutions provider, today announced the expansion of its online automation suite with the addition of a GDSII portal that allows eSilicon to provide rapid, automated quoting for TSMC foundry technologies. eSilicon will demonstrate this capability at the 51st Design Automation Conference (DAC), to be held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California from June 2 to June 4, 2014.

Building on the successful introduction of its instant online quoting system for multi-project wafer (MPW) shuttle services, eSilicon's GDSII portal offers the ability to fully specify the manufacturing process requirements for submission of a GDSII design to TSMC for manufacturing. The required manufacturing process information is specified through a series of easy-to-use menus, along with requirements for packaging, testing and delivery. An executable quotation from eSilicon is provided that includes non-recurring engineering (NRE) pricing and unit pricing for the system-on-chip (SoC) device.

Due to the highly interactive nature of the GDSII portal, customers receive immediate feedback from eSilicon on their choices for design and manufacturing. This interactive experience aids in the exploration of process and design options, facilitating a design optimized for power, performance and area (PPA) as well as NRE and unit cost.

"TSMC's Value Chain Aggregators such as eSilicon provide options for customers to work with TSMC, and this automated GDSII portal brings more choices to customers in a highly efficient manner," said Brad Paulsen, Senior Vice President, TSMC North America.

"Specifying all the information required to generate a complete quotation for volume manufacturing of a new SoC design can take weeks of effort," said Mike Gianfagna, vice president of marketing at eSilicon. "Our new GDSII portal provides one place where all of this information is readily available. The time required to produce a quote is now a few minutes vs. a few weeks. We're delighted to be offering this new capability in cooperation with TSMC."

eSilicon will be demonstrating the GDSII quoting system in booth 512 at DAC. You can find more information about eSilicon's other planned activities at DAC here.

The GDSII portal will be available for general customer use in late June 2014. Access will be through eSilicon's public website. Please click here if you would like to be notified when the GDSII portal is publicly available.
