On Wednesday at DAC I met with Bob Slee, distributor and Michael Siu, AE for MunEDA to get an update on what’s new. MunEDA has EDA software for:
- Schematic porting
- Nominal circuit analysis
- Nominal circuit optimization
- Statistical circuit analysis
- Statistical circuit optimization
- IP porting
- Circuit model generation
More important than just EDA tools they have tier one semiconductor customers using these tools.
Users: AMS designer, IP design, custom, memory – use Wicked to help optimize a netlist. User will define which transistors to change or vary, then tool will invoke SPICE circuit simulator, measure results. Specify: W, L, VDD or even process parameters.
Example: OpAmp circuit with a required gain. Wicked will optimize to try and reach the goal. If it cannot reach that spec it tells you.
WICkeD works with: Spectre, HSIM, Eldo, etc. simulator indepedent.
WICked: About 10 years old. From Technical University of Munich, help from Infineon.
Customers: Samsung, Toshiba, Hynix, ST, Infineon, ON Semi, ST, Altera, Faraday, Bosch, Atmel, IR, Fraunhofer, X Fab, Dialog Semi.
Sales: Contact your representative.
