Amalia is Thalia's platform for the re-use of analog and mixed-signal circuits which helps migrate, refine and optimize existing IP. Technology Analyzer has been added in to Amalia where is identifies discrepancies between base and target manufacturing processes.
"Whenever a key specification is not being met in the target technology, we have to determine the process technology or circuit characteristic responsible," said Sowmyan Rajagopalan, Thalia Design Automation CTO, in a statement. "By using our automated Technology Analyzer, we can take a design-centric approach to rapidly analyze and compare base and target technologies to see where the process technologies are similar and where they differ the most."
The analyzer addresses a set of first and second order effects including Ft, gm/Id, Vdsat, Vt mismatches and others. It helps clients assess whether or not IP is fit for purpose or suitable for cost-effective migration – a technology assessment solution essential in the selection of external IP and target process.
