NanGate to Present Joint 28nm Library IP Development Flow at DAC

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 28, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — NanGate, Inc. today announced that the company will co-present with SMIC, at the 51st Design Automation Conference, a highly efficient library development flow used for the creation of SMIC's 28nm standard cell library IPs. The joint presentation will take place on Wednesday June 4th, from 10:30 to 11:00 AM-PDT in the Moscone Center, San Francisco, booth #413.

By utilizing NanGate's automated layout development and layout migration tools in combination with the company's kick-start IP, SMIC was able to complete design and layout works of 6 (six) standard cell libraries in less than 6 (six) months. The libraries were created in 7T, 9T and 12T templates with reduced Metal-2 utilization – for increased routability – in both 28nm Poly SiON and 28nm High-K Metal Gate processes.

"Library Creator in combination with NanGate's kick-start IP portfolio helped SMIC develop their 28nm standard cell libraries very efficiently", said Jens Michelsen, COO at NanGate. "Three different libraries were developed for each of their 28nm process variants in less than six months while the process specification was constantly updated. We are pleased that SMIC could rely on our methodology built around Library Creator to quickly accommodate design rule changes and boost their IP team's productivity."

"As a leading foundry SMIC needs to develop competitive foundation IP" said Alexandre Toniolo, VP of Business Development at NanGate. "SMIC customers require high quality standard cell libraries, such as the ultra-high density 7 track library with low Metal-2 utilization architecture, which we developed by combining our kick-start IP portfolio and our layout automation tools."

NanGate Library Creator™ is an integrated, easy-to-use solution for digital standard cell library creation, migration, verification and optimization. It enables designers of digital CMOS ICs to custom-tailor digital cell libraries and to explore the impact of alternate device models, design rules and cell architectures.

NanGate Kick-Start IP portfolio is a repository of well-known structures to accelerate the creation of complex cells.
