🗓KIEV, Ukraine, December 17, 2018
POLYTEDA CLOUD LLC, an innovator in physical verification (PV) tools for the semiconductor industry, announced today the completion of qualification of its products for X-FAB, the leading analog/mixed-signal and MEMS foundry. The products involve traditional desktop tool PowerDRC/LVS and PVCLOUD, an advanced cloud-based physical verification solution. Now IC designers using X-FAB’s 180 nm modular high-voltage CMOS platform XH018 have access to a fast sign-off quality solution on a pay-per-use basis to dramatically reduce design cycle time and benefit from affordable costs (starting from $20 per hour) and faster time to market.
POLYTEDA’s PowerDRC/LVS enables rapid verification of new designs to ensure accuracy prior to mask creation and manufacturing. It can process multiple design rules and design layers simultaneously. In addition to superior processing speed, PowerDRC/LVS can handle huge amounts of data – up to tens of billions of transistors.
📇“Physical verification is an integral part of all state-of-the-art design flows and a prerequisite for successful designs.” said Joerg Doblaski, Director of Design Support at X-FAB. “We worked together with POLYTEDA to create and qualify runsets for our 180 nm modular HV CMOS platform XH018. PVCLOUD will give our customers the possibility to run physical verification in a cloud-based system using a pay-per-use business model, which will help to further promote the usage of modern physical verification tools especially among small and medium-sized enterprises.”
📇 “We are changing the EDA market as IС designers can now use PVCLOUD – our advanced cloud-based physical verification platform on a pay-per-use basis. It is fast, accurate, and utilizes the customer’s current design environment to present violations in a rational and organized way to quickly and easily validate their layout prior to manufacturing. PVCLOUD also delivers a notable shortening of verification cycle (up to 50%) depending on design type, size, and complexity and the VM hardware used,” said Alexander Grudanov, POLYTEDA Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased to have qualified our PV platform at X-FAB and look forward to further developing our productive and strategic partnership.”
POLYTEDA CLOUD was founded in 2015, developing cloud-ready PV workflow based on the fastest and most accurate flat engine in the market supporting hierarchical and multi-CPU capabilities.
PowerDRC/LVS addresses the complex physical verification stage of microchip design of a sign-off quality, which is a critical stage prior to manufacturing at a semiconductor foundry. POLYTEDA CLOUD engineers have the superior experience in developing high-end software for the microelectronics industry.
