STARC selects Solido Design Variation Tools
January 26, 2011 // Julien Happich
Solido Design Automation and STARC, the Japanese semiconductor technology research consortium, announced that STARC has qualified and selected Solido Variation Designer for its STARCAD-AMS analog/mixed-signal reference flow.
STARC is comprised of 9 electronics companies, five of whom participate in analog and mixed-signal (AMS) design. STARC’s AMS reference flow will support advanced custom IC design and is targeted to reduce overall turn-around time by 50 percent. One of STARC’s tasks is to validate and support this best-in-class, integrated design flow for its client companies.
The selection criteria STARC used to qualify Solido for its differential operational amplifier reference design, were to meet design performance specifications across PVT corner and local mismatch conditions. Total setup and operation time should not exceed 12 hours, and the tool had to meet MOS, resistor and capacitor area requirements
“We are pleased that STARC has selected Solido Variation Designer as a core technology for its analog/mixed-signal reference flow,” said Amit Gupta, President and CEO of Solido Design. “A recent independent survey showed designers calling for variation design to be integrated into custom IC schematic, simulation and layout technologies. STARC provides a tremendous service by validating these important design flow integrations through its AMS reference flow.”
