Tanner EDA and Dongbu HiTek Release Foundry-qualified PDK for BD180 Low Voltage 0.18um Process

Jointly-developed PDK extends Tanner EDA’s portfolio for designers of low voltage components

MONROVIA, California and SEOUL, Korea – October 27, 2011 Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal (A/MS) integrated circuits (ICs) and Dongbu HiTek, a world-class wafer fabricator, have finalized qualification of Dongbu HiTek’s 0.18um BD180LV process design kit (PDK). The BD180LV kit integrates seamlessly into Tanner’s cohesive, integrated tool flow. Designers using Tanner EDA’s analog design suite, HiPer Silicon, will have certified libraries to draw on as they create ICs for production at Dongbu HiTek foundries, reducing design risk and providing faster time to market and higher quality of outcomes.

On May 3, 2011, Tanner EDA and Dongbu HiTek announced that they were jointly developing foundry-certified PDKs to deliver access to Dongbu HiTek’s analog foundry capabilities on Tanner EDA’s tool flow. This BCDMOS process is ideal for integrating analog circuits (using Bipolar), logic circuits (using CMOS) and high-voltage circuits (using DMOS) all on the same chip.

“Electronic designers no longer need to rely exclusively on analog IDMs for high-performance analog CMOS performance in order to differentiate products,” said Taek Soo Kim, Ph.D, vice president of Dongbu’s HiTek’s technical engineering division. “As this collaboration with Tanner EDA shows, we continue to be committed to providing Dongbu customers with the best choices in electronic design automation software at critical development nodes.”

“We are pleased to add this qualified PDK to our portfolio,” said John Zuk, vice president of marketing and strategy for Tanner EDA. “Our customers continue to cite the strong affinity of Tanner EDA tools in the power management space and continued collaboration with Dongbu HiTek enables us to deliver on our commitments of interoperability, productivity, and quicker design cycles for our customers.”
