Vanguard International Semiconductor Adopts Sagantec Migration Solution

Specialty foundry cuts time to migrate its standard cell libraries

Santa Clara, California – June 4, 2012 – Sagantec today announced that Vanguard International Semiconductor Corporation (VIS) has adopted Sagantec's process migration solution for its standard cell libraries to be able to quickly migrate its IP or modify it to accommodate customer needs.

Using the Sagantec solution, VIS library development will be able to meet customer’s tight prototyping schedule. VIS has already successfully migrated a library from one process to another process using the Sagantec solution. In addition to the time and effort savings, VIS was also impressed with the quality of results: the Sagantec migration engine could handle the library layout style very well including diagonal shape structures and complete the entire library with only a few DRC errors.

VIS Director of IP design, Jeffrey Lin, said, “We chose Sagantec’s migration solution for its high quality of results and automated capabilities. With the Sagantec migration tools, we can reduce the manpower of porting our library cells to meet customer demand.”

“VIS, being a specialized foundry provider, needed a versatile migration technology that could accommodate its specialized and demanding customer requirements. We’re glad that we played a significant role in VIS’s success by supplying an automated, high quality, versatile migration solution that helps VIS shorten its IP migration schedule and delivers great results.” said Coby Zelnik of Sagantec.

“We continue to work with both foundries and designers to fulfill their current and future process migration and optimization needs in a variety of processes and technologies.” Zelnik concluded.
