X-FAB uses Silicon Frontline's post-layout extraction software
"Our customers are seeking ways to design more reliable and efficient SOCs for their automotive, power management and NVM embedded applications," stated Thomas Ramsch, Director Design Support at X-FAB. "After extensive evaluations, we decided to start using Silicon Frontline's R3D software for our XH018 process. R3D enhances our customers' SOC design quality and time to market with its powerful analysis and visualization of current density, potential distribution and IR drop. Therefore, we will offer XH018 Pcells for driver integration as part of our PDK by early March, giving customers a way to check their layout, optimize Rdson and do reliability checks."
"We are proud to add X-FAB to the list of the leading foundries that have qualified our 3D post-layout software for their advanced mixed-signal processes," said Yuri Feinberg, SFT CEO. "We believe that our R3D's analysis software is ideal for improving X-FAB's customers' design efficiency and reliability."
