Empyrean Polas™ Empowers a High-Performance Power IC Provider to Build-in Reliability Prior to Tape-out


Staff member
SANTA CLARA, Calif. –– Aug 2nd, 2019 –– Empyrean Software (Empyrean) today announced that Monolithic Power Systems, Inc.(MPS), a leading power IC products supplier in US, has adopted Empyrean Polas™ to analyze the reliability of power IC during layout stage of the design process.

Empyrean Polas™ is a layout-based reliability analysis product for power IC designs with comprehensive capabilities such as power path Rds(on) calculation and EM/IR-drop analysis, power MOSFET timing analysis and crosstalk analysis.

As a leading international semiconductor company, MPS creates cutting-edge solutions to improve the quality of life with green, easy-to-use products. With innovative proprietary technology processes, MPS thrive on re-imagining and re-defining the possibilities of high-performance power solutions in industrial applications, telecom infrastructures, cloud computing, automotive, and consumer applications.

“Benefiting from abundant experiences and test data, MPS has been leading the CMOS power supply technology in the world, ” said Zhengwei Zhang, Vice President of Design Engineering at Monolithic Power Systems, Inc., “With help from Empyrean’s Polas power layout analysis solution, we were able to analyze and build the required reliability into the design prior to tape out. We also chose Empyrean for their excellent support on a variety of customized features. ”

“With the increasing reliability requirements for today’s power ICs, designers have to confront the increasing reliability challenges from physical effects including shrinking process geometries, increasing current densities and related thermal issues. I am glad to see them use Polas and incorporate it into their flow,” said Steve Yang, CEO of Empyrean Software. “In addition, I sincerely appreciate the comprehensive collaboration we have had with MPS on Analog/Mixed-Signal design flow since 2011.”
