MagnaChip Launches Module Based Process Design Kits for Power and Display Driver Applications

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 5, 2011 — (PRNewswire) —  MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation ("MagnaChip Semiconductor") (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed signal semiconductor products, today announced that it now offers module based process design kits (PDK) designed specifically to support power and large display driver IC design applications.

MagnaChip's PDK supports a diverse set of design requirements used for product development based on the company's advanced process technologies. The process design kits incorporate design rule documentation, spice model for circuit design, schematic symbol typology, PCell (parameterized cell), DRC for layout design, LVS, LPE, and other technical files.

MagnaChip began development of the Modular PDK set methodology at the beginning of 2010. Currently, standardization of design rule documents, standard test patterns and modular DRC/LVS are now being applied to power and large display driver IC applications. 

The advantage of a modular PDK approach is the fast provisioning of quality process design kits through the use of verified standardized modules for each technology.  Another advantage of MagnaChip's PDK is that it features user-friendly functions such as one click downloads and installs which enhance the customer's experience. In addition, development time when using MagnaChip's newly launched PDK sets can be reduced by more than 50% as a result of the modular and pre-standardization approach to design.

T.J. Lee, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MagnaChip's Corporate Engineering commented, "We are very pleased to announce the offering of our module based process design kits for power and large display driver IC applications. By using a modular PDK approach, MagnaChip can dramatically reduce the cycle time for PDK development and verification. As a result, we provide enhanced cost competitiveness and design flexibility while continuing to provide user-friendly and cost-effective PDKs for our foundry customers."
