Foundry-certified 0.18-micron analog CMOS PDK
May 03, 2011 // Julien Happich
Tanner EDA and Dongbu HiTek have jointly developed a foundry-certified process design kit (PDK) that is seamlessly integrated into Tanner EDA's cohesive, integrated tool flow. Dongbu HiTek’s AN180 (0.18-micron analog CMOS) is optimized for performance and density.
It offers dense 1.8V logic and 5V CMOS, and moderate levels of power. The AN180’s versatility, coupled with Tanner EDA’s software solutions and certified libraries, will help IC designers reduce design risk and provide faster time to market for designers of mobile applications, sensor products, and low-power applications that require high-quality analog blocks.
Dongbu HiTek’s AN180 contains a rich set of analog components, coupled with up to 30V drain-extended CMOS devices (DECMOS), enabling this process to touch voltages above 5V. Since this is a modular process, and the platform for the BD180LV process, the high-performance power devices associated with that bi-polar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) process can be added whenever needed. The AN180 PDK contains schematic, simulation, layout, and verification structures that link Dongbu HiTek’s specific foundry manufacturing processes with the complete Tanner EDA design flow.
