Kiev, Ukraine: POLYTEDA CLOUD LLC, an innovator in cloud-based physical verification (PV) tools for the semiconductor industry, announced today the availability of the new PV runsets for 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 350nm high performance, high voltage ( XH035) and high temperature analog mixed signal ( XA035) CMOS processes have access to a silicon-proven solution on a pay-per-use basis to dramatically reduce design cycle time and benefit from affordable costs starting from 20 Euro per hour.
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 one billion of transistors per hour when utilizing 100 CPU cores.
“POLYTEDA grants X-FAB`s customers the possibility to run physical verification in foundry-endorsed cloud environment using a pay-per-use or pay-as-you-go business model, which will help save costs and dramatically reduce time to market especially for small and medium-sized enterprises,” said Alexander Grudanov, POLYTEDA Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased to expand our PV platform at X-FAB and look forward to further adding more PV runsets for other processes in Q3/Q4 2019”.
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 with sign-off quality the complex physical verification of microchip design, 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.
PVCLOUD is a sign-off quality foundry-endorsed cloud-based physical verification platform. It is available 24/7 as SaaS under pay-per-use and pay-as-you-go business model. The project was co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme.
