Analog/Mixed-signal reference kit enables rapid adoption of constraint-driven design
The Kit includes an OpenAccess PDK to enable mixed-signal designs for 180nm and other technologies, a reference design, flow scripts and detail documentation for easy setup and fast adoption. It demonstrates how advanced Cadence tools integrated in the design flow help increase design productivity, shorten time to market, improve quality of silicon, and reduce the overall design costs.
The A/MS Reference Kit covers a vast majority of Cadence design tools and flows, focusing on rapid analog prototyping and analog layout automation, full-chip A/MS simulation, analog-on-top mixed-signal implementation, automated custom routing, and digital block implementation. This comprehensive solution for achieving highest-quality A/MS designs offers full interoperability between the analog Virtuoso and Encounter Digital Implementation system, and consistent analog and digital implementation based on OpenAccess and mixed-signal-enabled PDK.X-FAB Silicon Foundries
