austriamicrosystems to collaborate with Cadence

austriamicrosystems AG collaborates with Cadence to address analog IC design challenges.
austriamicrosystems’ business unit Full Service Foundry has announced a strategic alliance with Cadence Design Systems, Inc. targeting analog integrated circuit (IC) design. The companies are collaborating to enable austriamicrosystems to deliver comprehensive HIT-Kits (austriamicrosystems process design kits, or PDKs) and reference flows based on the Cadence® Virtuoso® custom design platform. By optimizing the path from design through physical implementation, this collaboration enables analog IC designers to speed silicon to market.

“To succeed in today’s competitive analog IC market, designers must meet performance targets, challenging power specifications and aggressive market windows,” said Jan Willis, Senior Vice President, Industry Alliances, at Cadence. “Collaborating with leading analog foundries, such as austriamicrosystems, helps designers address these challenges with increased productivity and improved design quality.”

“Working with Cadence offers significant benefits to our common customers, as they get access to comprehensive information from both companies, such as design software and process data,” said Peter Gasteiner, Senior Vice President and General Manager of austriamicrosystems' business unit Full Service Foundry. “In addition, we are working on establishing a seamless analog reference flow that utilizes our leading analog process design kit – the HIT-Kit – with the Cadence Virtuoso platform. By delivering solutions to accelerate the design of silicon-accurate analog ICs, we can help our customers focus on their core competency – designing ICs.”
