May 07, 2012 // Peter Clarke
EDA company Sagantec North America has announced that is has acquired NP Komplete Technologies BV, a startup company founded in 2009.
Sagantec did not disclose how much it paid. Komplete Technologies provides physical IC design migration tools and services to automate migration and optimization of libraries, memories and custom layout for meeting new design rules and yield goals in new processes. and specializes in the 28-nm, 22- and 20-nm manufacturing process nodes. All the company's customers are among the top 20 semiconductor companies in the world. Sagantec, which has its engineering teams in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and Haifa, Israel, said that the NPKT team is now integrated with its Eindhoven team.
The NPKT migration technology is an automated layout optimization technology, and was designed to address 20-nm design rules and beyond.
Most of the additional design rules at 20-nm are required to overcome challenges of manufacturability that impact yield. The NPKT technology has been proven with clean design rule checked results at several semiconductor companies, and on 28- and 20-nm processes at foundries.
The 22-nm nomenclature for a process node is only being used by Intel at present. According to its website NPKT develops and maintains all of design for manufacturing (DFM) products marketed by Takumi Technology Corp. (Santa Clara, Calif.)
